Contributive Justice

Contributive justice is a normative theory about a dimension of justice that has emerged in a variety of contexts and a myriad of intellectual disciplines.  Dr. Carpenter’s work finds the root of this dimension of justice in Christian theology and in mankind’s vocational relationship as a co-worker with God. 

In her ground-breaking doctoral research, Dr. Carpenter has created a consolidated scholarly definition of contributive justice that seeks to inspire interdisciplinary dialog and provide a new moral paradigm in ethics.

The video below offers a brief summary of contributive justice theory.  Dr. Carpenter’s full work can be found in her forthcoming book entitled Co-Workers with God: Mankind’s Challenge of Work and Wealth.
