Justice was once thought to be culturally specific; so no general standard of justice applied. Both the idea of an inborn sense of justice and gloabalization have played important roles in the development of a general (global) idea of justice. A concern with global justice often focuses on unjust treatment of people of non-western countries by people from western countries. Both international aid and the various forms of security are affected by the idea of and demands for global justice.
