Trem­mel, Jörg (2006): Hand­book of Inter­gen­er­a­tional Justice
ISBN 13–978145429003

This hand­book pro­vides a detailed overview of var­i­ous issues relat­ed to inter­gen­er­a­tional jus­tice. Com­pris­ing arti­cles writ­ten by a dis­tin­guished group of schol­ars from the inter­na­tion­al aca­d­e­m­ic com­mu­ni­ty, the hand­book is divid­ed into two main the­mat­ic sec­tions – foun­da­tions and def­i­n­i­tions of inter­gen­er­a­tional jus­tice, and insti­tu­tion­al­iza­tion of inter­gen­er­a­tional jus­tice. The first part clar­i­fies basic terms and explores the ori­gins of the idea of inter­gen­er­a­tional jus­tice. The sec­ond part of the vol­ume high­lights how pos­ter­i­ty can be insti­tu­tion­al­ly pro­tect­ed, for exam­ple by insert­ing rel­e­vant claus­es into nation­al constitutions.
Read­ing this vol­ume is the best way to gain an over­all knowl­edge of inter­gen­er­a­tional justice.


Trem­mel, Jörg (ed.) (2008): Demo­graph­ic Change and Inter­gen­er­a­tional Jus­tice: The Imple­men­ta­tion of Long-Term Think­ing in the Polit­i­cal Deci­sion Mak­ing Process
ISBN 978–3‑540–77084‑8

The book deals with the field of inter­gen­er­a­tional jus­tice and demo­graph­ic change, exam­in­ing it as seen from dif­fer­ent discipline’s per­spec­tives. The authors from dif­fer­ent coun­tries ana­lyze the con­se­quences of the demo­graph­ic change for eco­nom­ic poli­cies as well as for envi­ron­men­tal and social poli­cies, not for­get­ting to include eth­i­cal prob­lems in their con­sid­er­a­tions. This inter­dis­ci­pli­nary anthol­o­gy is com­posed of five sec­tions. Sec­tion one ana­lyzes the trends and con­se­quences of demo­graph­ic change for a nation­al econ­o­my. The sec­ond sec­tion exam­ines the impact of demo­graph­ic change on key sus­tain­abil­i­ty indi­ca­tors in cer­tain areas of inter­est in more detail. The fol­low­ing sec­tion, asks how inter­gen­er­a­tional jus­tice is affect­ed if sus­tain­abil­i­ty indi­ca­tors change due to demo­graph­ic change. The fourth sec­tion address­es the pos­si­bil­i­ties of pop­u­la­tion poli­cies to affect inter­gen­er­a­tional jus­tice. The last sec­tion intro­duces and ana­lyzes propo­si­tions for the real­iza­tion of an inter­gen­er­a­tional policy.


Trem­mel, Jörg (eds.) (2015): Youth Quo­tas and oth­er Effi­cient Forms of Youth Par­tic­i­pa­tion in Age­ing Societies
ISBN: 978–331913-430–7

This book ana­lyzes how rights, inter­ests and wor­ries of young peo­ple can be appro­pri­ate­ly rep­re­sent­ed in West­ern democ­ra­cies. A new idea is the intro­duc­tion of Youth Quo­tas in polit­i­cal insti­tu­tions to act against the mar­gin­al­iza­tion of the youth – caused by demo­graph­ic change and con­comi­tant with the over­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the inter­ests of elders. The authors ana­lyze the top­ic “Youth Quo­tas” from a philo­soph­i­cal, polit­i­cal, soci­o­log­i­cal and demo­graph­ic per­spec­tive and look at the eli­gi­bil­i­ty of Youth Quo­tas and oth­er mea­sures, for a suit­able con­sid­er­a­tion of the (eco­log­i­cal) inter­ests of young and future gen­er­a­tions in polit­i­cal institutions.
