Political Institutions for the Future: A Five-Fold Package

(ed.)
Oxford University Press (forthcoming)
Abstract
Governments are often so focused on short-term gains that they ignore the long term, thus creating extra unnecessary burdens on their citizens, and violating their responsibilities to future generations. What can be done about this? In this paper I propose a package of reforms to the ways in which policies are made by legislatures, and in which those policies are scrutinised, implemented and evaluated. The overarching aim is to enhance the accountability of the decision-making process in ways that take into account the interests of persons in the future.
Keywords intergenerational justice  short-termism  rights of future generations  democratic theory
