A key goal of the Fiducia project is to extend procedural justice theory in three new directions. The first relates to public perceptions of new forms of criminal behaviour. The second concerns the applicability of procedural justice theory to these new forms of behaviour. The third considers the notion that legitimacy crosses national borders. In this Fiducia report we motivate and outline core theory, concepts and measures. We also present the questionnaire to be fielded in seven European countries.
