Les moyens de mettre juridiquement en œuvre la justice intergénérationnelle

Ways to Legally Implement Intergenerational Justice

*  *  *

Publié le vendredi 07 mai 2010 par Karim Hammou

Résumé

Nos démocraties sont confrontées à une nouvelle problématique: il s'agit de la nécessité de prendre en compte les intérêts des générations futures. Telles qu'elles se pensent et s'exercent à l'heure actuelle, nulle place n'est réservée à la protection des hommes de demain au niveau du processus démocratique. Dans ce contexte, les impératifs de justice intergénérationnels ne peuvent être mis en œuvre. Chaque partie politique se focalise bien souvent sur les préférences très actuelles de l'électorat. Nous souhaitons trouver des moyens pour réconcilier la démocratie avec les impératifs de justice intergénérationnels. À cette fin, il est nécessaire d'instituer les intérêts des générations futures au sein du processus démocratique. Le récent échec du Sommet de Copenhage confirme l'urgence de penser à situer les générations futures au sein de ce processus. Comment faire ?
