Democratic institutions and future generations: an international workshop | London, 10 May

Where there are tensions between short-term gains and long-term security, the interests of people alive today almost always triumph over those alive in the future. But they don’t have to. This workshop will explore the options for overcoming the short-termism of democratic institutions and steering them towards protecting future generations.

The detailed programme for the workshop can be accessed below, or downloaded in pdf. There will be an assumption that participants will have read the papers beforehand. Please contact Professor Graham Smith g.smith@westminster.ac.uk if you would like to participate in the workshop and receive copies of the papers.
