Linking generations for global justice

Added 2 weeks ago by Giacomo Balduzzi on Sociology
Humanity thrives on the emergence of new generations: each one adds fresh perspectives, new ways of thinking, and changes values, institutions and practices. At times of rapid change on a global scale, new generations are vital in all fields of science and technology. However, global change lays bare the tensions between generations and raises major questions for justice between generations: How can we make the environment safe for generations to come? How do we integrate and include first and second generations of migrants? How diverse should our legal and justice institutions be? What does a just distribution of welfare between generations look like? How are generations linked in the digital revolution that will affect justice systems globally? How are younger generations given a voice and stake in decisions about their future? How are older generations protected in times of rapid social change?
