About Chris Bell
As social beings, we are often preoccupied with issues of recognition, rewards, status, community and identity. My research explores our construction of justice and morality as they relate to these concerns and in particular their relevance to personal and contractual relationships. Gaining a better understanding of the social and psychological processes of justice and morality will help to create more welcoming communities, improve individual social well-being and reduce aggressive and defensive responses to perceived moral or ethical threat. I am a founding member of the Organisational Justice and Behavioural Ethics Group, and my blog can be found on our website at ojberg.org
