How well do OECD member states live up to the principles of intergenerational justice? How clearly can such principles be measured? And how can cross-national comparisons help foster improved strategizing in policymaking? A new study conducted by the Bertelsmann Stiftung and authored by Dr. Pieter Vanhuysse European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research provides answers to these questions. The indicators comprising the new Intergenerational Justice Index (IJI) represent important environmental, economic-fiscal and social aspects of this highly complex subject.
