Title: "What Do We Owe Future Generations?"

Abstract: Politicians, policy experts, and the general public all appear to agree that current generations ought to take into account the interests of future generations when crafting public policies.  What is the source of that obligation between generations?  Given that it exists, what is the extent of any such obligation?  Although intergenerational obligations are typically invoked when discussing economic policies and especially environmental issues, surely those obligations also carry over into the political realm, including obligations to protect the rule of law and constitutional democracy as well as to promote tolerance and equality.  This lecture is based on a book project that is currently in progress.
