This chapter is focused on the policy and philosophy of distributional justice in relation to children in the UK. It begins by studying the political philosophy that supports present government policies for children, most especially equality and anti-poverty policies. It is followed by a review of the limited political and economic philosophy literature on distributional justice for children. The discussion in this chapter is child-centred, and it examines the justice of relationships between children, as well as between children and adults.

Keywords:   distributional justice, political philosophy, children, anti-poverty policies, equality, economic philosophy, relationships
