The political decisions we make today affect future generations severly and in multiple ways. This might have normative implications from a democratic point of view. For example, some authors suggest that we should reserve seats in parliament for representatives of future generations. Another proposal is to restrict the decisional power of current demoi via constitutional courts so as to protect the rights of future generations. 

The course begins with texts that introduce the philosophical problems underlying the issue of democracy and future generations: the justification of democracy, the non-identity problem, and the democratic boundary problem. Then we turn to proposed solutions, such as those mentioned above, and critical responses.
