This chapter examines the possible links between sustainability and distributive justice, focusing on the welfare of future generations. It discusses the argument of Wilfred Beckerman and Joanna Pasek which holds that interests of future generations cannot be protected or promoted within the framework of any theory of justice. This chapter also outlines a theory of intergenerational justice and explains what this theory might imply for welfare reform.

Keywords:   sustainability, distributive justice, welfare, future generations, Wilfred Beckerman, Joanna Pasek, intergenerational justice, welfare reform
