Intergenerational justice

I work on conceptions of justice between generations that can help guide contemporary responses to climate change, as well as other challenges that span generations of people.

I am primarily animated by the following question: what, if any, duties of justice hold between generations?

I am currently working on a paper that defends a conception of intergenerational, imperfect duties, especially as that type of duty supports (or appears to support, at least to me) substantive duties to make future generations better off.
