In this chapter, the author proposes the recognition of differentiated rights within the framework of ethnic and cultural diversity. This must allow elucidating the idea of proportional justice, according to the guidelines of analogical hermeneutics. Impartiality and equity, as defining elements of justice, must be placed within the framework of proportionality, which requires a political justice, adequated to theoretical and practical demands of pluralism. This, in a political and legal philosophy key, as analogical hermeneutics of justice, fosters the possibility of developing a theory of material justice, as a measure of assessment for law and policy.
