Corrective Justice vs. Social Justice in the Aftermath of War
Justicia correctiva vs. justicia social en casos de conflicto armado;
Justiça corretiva vs. Justiça social em casos de conflito armado
How do we justify the practice of corrective justice for losses suffered during armed conflicts? This article seeks to show the force and relevance of this question, and to argue that, in cases of massively destructive wars, social justice should gain priority over corrective justice. Starting from a liberal Rawlsian conception of the relationship between corrective and social justice, it is argued that, paradoxically, the more destructive a war is, the less normative force corrective rights have and the higher priority policies of social justice, which guarantee basic rights to all citizens, should have.
