Generationengerechte und nachhaltige Bildungspolitik

Springer-Verlag
Free sample

Inhaltlich behandelt ‚Generationengerechte und nachhaltige Bildungspolitik’ zwei hochaktuelle, miteinander verknüpfte Themengebiete: Generationengerechtigkeit und Nachhaltigkeit auf der einen Seite und Hochschul- bzw. Bildungspolitik auf der anderen Seite. Die Begriffe ‚Nachhaltigkeit’ beziehungsweise ‚nachhaltige Entwicklung’ machten in Rekordzeit weltweit Karriere: Die großen Weltkonferenzen der letzten Dekade beschworen sie, völkerrechtliche Abkommen nahmen sie auf, Koalitionsvereinbarungen in Bund und Ländern erklärten die dazugehörigen Konzepte zum Leitbild der deutschen Regierungspolitik. Trotz – oder gerade wegen – dieser rasanten Karriere konnte (noch) keine Einigkeit über die Bedeutung des Begriffs ‚Nachhaltigkeit’ erzielt werden. Generationengerechte Politik hat große Schnittmengen zu nachhaltiger Politik, betont jedoch die Generationen als Akteure. Der Interessenkonflikt zwischen Generationen tritt in den modernen Gesellschaften als neue Konfliktdimension neben die vorhandenen "Kannbruchstellen" (z.B. die Cleavages zwischen Arm und Reich, Männern und Frauen, verschiedenen Ethnien usw.). Insofern wird im 21. Jahrhundert auch der faire Ausgleich zwischen Generationen - die Generationengerechtigkeit - immer wichtiger. Im Mittelpunkt dieses Bandes soll die Besser- bzw. Schlechterstellung verschiedener Kohorten von Bildungsteilnehmern in den letzten Jahrzehnten stehen.​

This book examines ways to ensure that the rights, interests and concerns of young people are properly represented in Western democracies. One new proposal is the introduction of youth quotas in political institutions in order to counter the possible marginalization of young people caused by demographic ageing and, thereby, an overrepresentation of the interests of the elderly.

The book explores key questions regarding the implementation of youth quotas from different perspectives, including philosophy, political science, sociology and demography. It examines whether youth quotas and other measures that give the young more voice and influence in political institutions are a good means for promoting the cause of intergenerational justice. In particular, it investigates how and if youth quotas can be used to ensure that the environmental interests of young and future generations are being taken into account.

In addition, the book introduces an innovative model that would give a right to vote to minors without voting age boundaries. The book also discusses suffrage reforms through lowering the voting age in Western countries, as well as introducing methods especially aimed at raising the skills of children necessary for societal citizenship and empowerment of young citizens.

The volume will help raise awareness and knowledge about the intergenerational implications of demographic changes in Western democracies, where ageing societies are increasingly turning into gerontocracies. It offers readers deep insight into how youth quotas in particular (and others forms of youth participation in general) might be efficient methods to ensure that younger generations are included in the political decision making process and other activities in society.
