Review quote

The mix of an ageing population in the West, young and eager individuals in some failed states in Africa, new and emerging hegemonies in the East and well-off, complacent societies in the North brings with fear and tensions that are only aggravated by the onset of climate change. New mobilities together with a largely unregulated social-media that creates a biased and self-confirming reality further divides, rather than pacifies a global audience - leading to fear, anger, and nationalism. The book aptly analyses this situation from various angles and perspectives and asks questions about inherent generational responsibilities through addressing temporal and causative aspects. What is more, this book introduces ways to tackle some of these problems and thus shows ways to reconcile generations by accepting mutual responsibility when it comes to integrate people, planet and profits in intergenerational policies. It is well suited for academics and policy-makers alike and is filled with insights from various contexts and generations.
