Exploration of occupational justice in developed Asian societies
While the concept of occupational justice has most commonly been described from a Western perspective, there is a call for international dialogue about occupational justice and critical analysis of instances of occupational injustice. In this paper three examples of occupational injustice in developed Asian societies will be presented. We highlight, first a well-intentioned institutional policy that deprives individuals of a basic and important occupation; second, the restriction of occupations inherent in the culture of keeping older people safe and well looked after; third, injustice among family members and foreign domestic helpers who provide care for people with disability. To advance the development of occupational justice in Asia, we make suggestions for actions that can be adopted at the individual and community levels and recommendations for future research.
