dc.description.abstract The paper begins by distinguishing the most common justifications for affirmative action and situating the use of quotas within that framework. It is suggested that the arguments evaluated in the paper are useful in attempting to justify not only the quota system, but also other policies which make use of racial preference. Both justice-based and consequentialist arguments to defend the quota system are discussed at length, with both being found to be unsatisfactory in their attempts to justify the "reverse discrimination" found in the quota system and other policies which make use of racial preference. en_ZA
