This article aims to propose an analysis of public policies that take into account the normative issues of justice. The starting point is the assumption that public policies have among their goals to promote justice. Public policies are understood as institutions that distribute goods and social resources and seek the realization of fundamental rights, a task that has an important impact on the distribution of goods and resources in society and thus in the mitigation of social inequality. Considering this premise, and coming from a brief presentation of main conceptions of justice for the developed reflection, this article proposes a substantive analysis of public policies and presents two perspectives from which they are to be carried out, one being institutionalist-procedural, and the other being based on the ideas and values that constitute the foundations of institutions and of the political action.
