This dissertation attempts to answer the following question: "If a corporation has done something and if there has been adverse outcome, how can corporation legitimately justify what it has done?"

Crisis is a unique organisational event which corporation will normally force to react quickly and to justify it. Large corporations are particularly at risk of different stakeholders, and then it is best to provide them with valid types of justification.

In this dissertation, at first a model of justification or a framework of justification has been employed for analysing justification. Within this concept the connection between justification and causing has been introduced. It also introduced the idea of justification of tort law, causality and causation

Secondly, this dissertation has introduced the Sens distinction between a culmination outcome and a comprehensive outcome. The comprehensive outcome differs from the culmination outcome, which the former introduce the issues to do with process.

Thirdly, I take the model, the framework, and considered the question of justification in there ways. Firstly, I used the theory of tort law and Sens to reduce the number possible types of justification. Secondly, I attempt to test these justifications in two ways: first way was by confront them with Sharia law and second way was by confront them with what people say. There are large level of consistency between what people say and what Sharia law says and our theoretical model. The theoretical model is based on justification of causing, taking into account the quality of act within causal chain.

Since the question "how do you justify that?" is very open-ended question, I have produced a formal mathematical model of the idea of justification and the model largely has been successful. The formal mathematical model of justification largely agrees with empirical evidence and allows us to distinguish between what is valid justification and what is not.
