Abstract

Three main elements characterise the notion of sustainable development: first, a broad view of human well-being, in which environmental and social elements are important as well as economic ones; second, the view that many of the effects of today's decisions will last over time, thereby affecting the well-being of future generations; third, the view that many of today's problems have their roots in actions and policies in other fields, whose unintended consequences may not be coherent with society's broader priorities and aspirations.

Tout en concernant particulièrement le domaine de l’environnement, le chapitre 1 montre que ces idées s’appliquent également à l’analyse de nombreuses questions sociales. Cela tient en particulier à leur dimension inter-générationnelle. Les problèmes sociaux qui touchent les individus ...
