Magdalen Laundries

documentary In Loving Memories (Rousseau, 2016). Through this work, Rousseau's intention is to show how ‘testimonies of a difficult past not only contribute to reflections on sustained social inequalities, but actually enable a form of political accountability by reconstructing narratives and preserving them, as archival presences, for future generations’. Rousseau demonstrates, as each of the chapters in this Part do, that continuing work is needed from artists, activists, and academics (and those working in other fields) to ensure that the Magdalen Laundries are

: social, economic, cultural and environmental development are in balance; and this development is not at the expense of future generations. The ‘polluter pays’ principle provides that the costs of environmental damage, as well as the costs of preventing, reducing, and controlling environmental damage, are borne by the

as autonomy for future generations. From here to sustainability; ways of reconciling political and ecological time scales There are several alternative ways of reconciling political and ecological time cycles. The most long-term binding perspectives have historically been found in physical planning, i.e., the process of directing, restricting, or even forbidding certain uses of land and resources. Planning regulations and processes infringe on present resource use to an extent that makes it perhaps the most authoritative way of reconciling political and ecological

historical figures that appear in Forrest Gump and JFK are the authentic traces of the past; the archival image can no longer be assumed to be an authentic record of past events. As Thomas Elsaesser writes, ‘Future generations, looking at the history of the 20th century, will never be able to tell fact from fiction, having the media as material evidence. But then, will this distinction still matter to

Criteria for ecologically rational governance

and natural resources to achieve sustainability. • Ecological governance is spatially rational to the extent that it defines the circles of participating stakeholders and interests in goal setting and decision-making on actual resource use and management in accordance with relevant spatial scales. Ecological governance and time As an ethic principle for intergenerational equity, sustainability pits present demands on natural resources against the perceivable demands of future generations. Against the economic concept of ‘sustained development’ based on expectancy

Post-connoisseurial dystopia and the profusion of things

time, we have a duty to future generations to actually try and show the way things are today. Are there ways of putting on the brakes and saying enough is enough? You want to know what we collect and why – and it’s a good question. But to be quite honest, I think that sometimes it’s more a matter of having to decide what not to collect – not that that makes it any easier. The description and quotation above are fictional, in the sense that they are not literal descriptions or transcriptions (except in fragments) from a particular individual or any specific museum

to rule out all forms of genetic manipulation (including those that may improve well-being) or we have to distinguish between moral and immoral uses, which means making some difficult decisions about future generations. If we prefer leaving it to nature, then we are in effect disinventing the technology and so making a decision under the cover of a non-decision. In short, whichever way we turn we cannot avoid the necessity of making a choice. And when ‘choice’ joins ‘chance’ in determining future generations’ characteristics, then we are dealing with eugenics. Now

in After the new social democracy
Peter J. Verovšek

passing of the individuals that toiled in their establishment reveals the important generational dynamics involved in the (re)-founding of political communities. As time passes and circumstances change, future generations begin to think about the political forms of life they have inherited from the dead in new ways. To a certain extent, this is part of a natural process. However, it can also have negative effects as new leaders forget the lessons of the past and no longer recognise the benefits of the institutions that have been bequeathed to them. This is the

Orangewomen of England, Scotland and Canada were adept, then, at performing seemingly conventional gender roles in their Orange activism, caring for and nurturing future generations, while playing a significant, and public, role in the life of their community. This performance of gender norms also characterised Orangewomen’s activism outside of the Order. Orangewomen’s intervention in education authority elections in 1920s Scotland, or in raising money for an ‘Orange Hut’ for wounded servicemen during the First World War, or campaigning against Catholic education in

present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs’ (WCED, 1987). This sentiment is reminiscent of the Native American Seventh Generation philosophy that leaders must consider the effects of their actions through to the seventh generation of their people. The principle of the three pillars of sustainability says that for complete sustainability to be achieved, all three pillars must be sustainable. The three pillars are social sustainability, environmental sustainability, and economic sustainability. Of the three pillars, the
