Functional justice? On the role of equality as motive in volunteering intention.
Veranstaltung: Institute of Work Psychology International Conference 2012 on Work, Well-being and Performance: 'Thriving in Times of Uncertainty', 26.06.-28.06.2012, Sheffield, United Kingdom.

Although themes of justice and prosocial behavior have a long research tradition, the literature on the influence of justice perceptions on sustained prosocial behavior is rather moderate. The research project justice in voluntary engagement (JIVE) integrates two established approaches and addresses the issue of justice perceptions and their relation to the willingness or unwillingness to volunteer in the social sector. The voluntary engagement is differentiated according to developed work psychological categories of activity, which are rooted in the differentiation of person- vs. object-related activity. The following five attributes characterize this project: (1) Applying the reasoned action approach and augmenting it with emotional variables; (2) Investigating explained variance of social sector voluntary engagement by innovative justice cognitions in comparison to the established antecedents volunteer functions and norm- as well as control-related cognitions; (3) Moving beyond the dichotomy of altruism vs. egoism as sole motives of prosocial behavior and revealing the complex moral motive of justice; (4) Innovatively integrating the theory of planned behavior and the volunteer functions inventory into one research instrument; (5) Building on a definition of prosocial behavior as a sustained, organized form of behavior that could possibly be remunerated. The upcoming cross-sectional study draws on a convenience sample of volunteers as well as non-volunteers in Switzerland to allow for different multilevel analyses.
