    The article is based on the research results which summarize the evaluation of socio-economic justice perception for the citizens of Lithuania. The literature analysis suggests that the main objective of welfare state is a perfect social justice. Social justice is associated with the free market economy and the government's desire to reduce social risk of socially excluded groups: the unemployed, the disabled people, the poor families and so on. Since different social groups have different living conditions in Lithuania, perception and understanding of social justice is different. The authors conducted an empirical study searching for the answer to the following questions: what is the perception of social justice for different social groups and what models of social behaviour: individualism and collectivism are prevalent in Lithuania. The article was prepared by using comparative analysis of scientific literature, summarizing results of empirical study and the authors'insights on this topic. The article is written within the framework of the project SIN-12005 'Social challenges for national security' supported by the Council of Sciences in Lithuania.
