My purpose with this essay is to raise, not to answer, this question. First, I briefly introduce the field of institutional analysis and design in social science. Second, I describe the field of DSD and apply elements of institutional analysis. Third, I survey how scholars have discussed varieties of justice in relation to legal institutions and other systems for managing conflict. The organizers of this symposium asked us to look toward the next generation of DSD. I conclude that the most significant issues for the future are: we must become more mindful of how designing institutions and systems to manage conflict affects justice; we should move more knowingly and intentionally to assess justice in DSD; and we owe it to the next generation of lawyers to teach them how to serve ethically in their new role as designers of justice.(escerpt)
