    [eng] The Pension System and Intergenerational Equity . by Alexandra Tragaki . Although the classic coverage of pension research is frequently concerned with long-run analyses and forecasts of the system's viability, there are fewer longitudinal studies made of past and future generations despite their specific interest. The main purpose of this paper is to examine the extent to which pension systems maintain intertemporal justice, taking equal account of the interests of the individuals regardless of their date of birth; if the system is always run on the basis of uniformity, reciprocity and equality over time. Public opinion is concerned about the assets used and the people who will never recoup the sum they have contributed and who distrust this "contract between generations". It remains to be seen the extent to which this reaction is justified. [fre] Le système de retraite et l'équité intergênérationnelle . par Alexandra Tragaki . Si le champ traditionnel de la recherche concernant la retraite s'intéresse fréquemment aux diagnostics et projections à long terme sur la viabilité du système, les travaux longitudinaux consacrés aux bilans des générations passées et futures demeurent, malgré leur intérêt particulier, moins nombreux. L'intérêt principal de cet article est d'examiner jusqu'à quel point les systèmes de retraite préservent la justice intertemporelle en prenant soin égal des intérêts des gens quelle que soit leur date de naissance ; autrement dit si le système fonctionne toujours sur l'uniformité, la réciprocité, l'égalité au cours du temps. L'opinion publique parle des actifs exploités, des gens qui n'arriveront jamais à récupérer la somme qu'ils auront cotisée et qui doutent de ce "contrat entre les générations". Il reste à vérifier jusqu'à quel point cette réaction est justifiée.
