2014 In Process Fair inequalities: contextual and psychosocial factors The present research aims to advance the analysis of explanatory mechanisms of the context effect on the justification of inequality through the presentation of experimental situations (laboratory and survey) where the “real” situation of inequality is manipulated and then its influence on the ideal or fair situation of inequality is analysed. This is framed within the empirical approximation towards distributive fairness, particularly in the justification of salary differences as a form of “fair inequality”.
