A Plea for Pan-generational Fairness by Huw Evans – Short Ideas Paper 9
This short paper considers intergenerational and future generation fairness and asserts that, due to the focus of each, the two are not looked at holistically. It argues the need for an holistic approach and that this should be applied to political discourse and social policy formulation. The term ‘pan-generational fairness’ is suggested as appropriate to reflect that holistic approach. At the end, related questions are asked to promote debate.
