By explaining the implications of different interpretations of key concepts of liberalism – such as equality, liberty, justice – and how those interpretations affect the authors view on affirmative action, the results of this study shows that Dworkin’s and Rawl’s view of a liberalism with a commitment to fair opportunity of equality provides a normative standpoint which can justify the actions of Rättviseförmedlingen.
