The aim of this survey was to determine the prospective teachers´ representations of Social Justice and its three dimensions (Murillo and Hernandez, 2011, Jacott and Maldonado, 2012): Redistribution, Recognition and Representation / Participation). We researched whether there were differences in the representations, in terms of gender, the study area (Humanities and Social Sciences or Science), or previous teaching experience (with or without) among participants. For this we designed and validated a questionnaire that allowed us to evaluate those representations in students of Master in secondary teaching education, from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. The results did not show significant differences in terms of gender representations, nor as to the field of study. However, differences were found between subjects with regard to the presence or absence of previous teaching experience. Keywords: Social Justice, training teachers, Redistribution, Recognition, Representation/Participation, dilemmas, education
