Posterity in Politics – Future in Democracy

The 21st century is facing a global transformation of economic and political systems. By shaping the institutions of our future world we need to rethink our concern for all those who will be affected by our actions – even if they are not yet born. How can we make political decision-making more adaptive to the interests of future generations? And how can our democratic institutions ensure justice between generations?

My research addresses questions of intergenerational justice in policy making, thereby touching on issues in Political Philosophy, Ethics and Negotiation Theory.
