Protecting the Interests of Future Generations — Drawing Lessons from Practice | Paper by Victor Anderson, CUSP

Protecting the Interests of Future Generations

A new paper by the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity, authored by FDSD associate Victor Anderson, considers possible reforms to UK constitutional and political arrangements intended to help overcome the problem of a lack of representation of future generations.

Drawing lessons from existing initiatives in Finland, Hungary, Wales and elsewhere, recommendations include the establishment of a House of Lords Committee for Future Generations, the reform of the National Infrastructure Commission, and the appointment of a UK Commissioner for Future Generations.

The full paper can be accessed on the CUSP website.
