The paper explores the role of justice theory in comparative law research. Examples are taken from the law of dispute resolution. The following questions will be raised: Why is justice relevant for comparative law research? How can justice theory be integrated into comparative research methodology? What are the consequences for comparative taxonomies? The paper concludes with a comparative taxonomy for dispute resolution mechanisms designed from the perspective of normative individualism.
