(p.1) 1 Introduction
Justice, Institutions, and Luck

Kok-Chor Tan

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the three questions to be examined in this book: those of the site, ground, and scope of distributive equality, and introduces the challenges to institutional, luck, and global egalitarianism. It also clarifies the terrain of inquiry, situating distributive equality within the domain of social justice but distinct from the domain of humanitarian concerns, and clarifies the sense in which a distributive commitment is egalitarian as opposed to sufficientist.

Keywords:   social justice, equality, egalitarian justice, distributive justice, luck egalitarianism, institutions, global justice, sufficientism, cosmopolitanism, John Rawls
