When Petty “My Justice” Confirmation Bias Affects National Credibility


When justice is reduced to "my justice" within a country, internal divisions and mistrust are triggered. Biased institutions erode social cohesion and trust in the legal system. These internal tensions can have repercussions on relations between countries, since the lack of coherence and equity at the national level can influence external perception.

At the international level, pettiness in a country's internal justice can affect diplomatic relations. Lack of transparency and inability to address internal issues fairly can lead to criticism and tensions with other nations. Trust in bilateral and international agreements is compromised when a country does not demonstrate a clear commitment to justice and equity in its internal affairs. In short, pettiness in justice at the national level can have significant ramifications in the international arena.
