This paper explores different conceptualisations of social justice that have been developed in the field of education in recent years, and aims to contribute to the design of a new instrument for evaluating and analysing students’ and teachers representations of social justice. There has been an increased emphasis over the last decade on the social justice agenda for education issues, yet despite the extensive conceptual work on social justice issues there are few measurement tools for analysing the key elements involved in the different scenarios that can be related with teaching for social justice, and for illustrating changes in teachers’ representations of social justice.
