Accepted Paper:

The theory of justice and the ethics of kinship  
Juan Bestard (Universitat de Barcelona)

Paper long abstract:

In this paper, I want to analyse if justice, as presented by Rawls in his Theory of Justice, is a concept appropriate to introduce in the anthropological analysis of kinship. First, I will examine why kinship was set apart from modernist theories of social contract. Second, I analyze the concepts of "reciprocity" and "amity" as the main anthropological concepts of the ethics of kinship, which could be related with the concept of justice. Finally, I analyze the justice as a virtue in kinship relations, especially between generations and gender relations.
