Abstract

Wide range of human behaviors in the context of organizations can be explained by how the workplace perceives distributive, procedural, interactional, and relational fairness. That is why numerous researchers investigated the role of justice perceptions on job satisfaction, withdrawal behaviors, organizational citizenship behavior, organizational commitment, and productivity. However, there is a gap in the research arena regarding the role guanxi plays in organizational justice, especially in organizational injustice. Guanxi in organizational injustice, is a concept derived from the concept of network and the concept of nepotism. Network and nepotism (are more taboo and) are common topics of research in the arena organizational studies, whereas in the arena of education and higher education institutions, are still lacking. Guanxi is a form of social capital that aims to amass symbolic capital, and the more powerful one's symbolic capital, the more influential one's standing becomes.
