A Rawls-Sen Approach to Spatial Injustice

Daniel Rauhut


This paper outlines a guiding principle to address spatial inequalities and injustice in terms of distribution, recognition and participation. The result suggests the emergence of a contractarian principle designed to deal with geographically distributed inequalities, allowing for a monitored market economy applicable not only to cities but to all types of territory. This guiding principle is based upon the 1998 Nobel Laureate in Economics Amartya Sen’s concept Capability Deprivation and a territorialisation of the liberal philosopher John Rawls’ second principle for achieving Social Justice.
