And Abu Simbel is only one of many World Heritage sites; that is, a place that is held to be irreplaceable for future generations. The past is everywhere Viewed from a satellite or on a map, the World Heritage sites appear as points and lines spread across the continents of the globe. Every year sees an increase in the number of sites included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List. While the list consisted of 12 World

‘Environmental destruction – The price of prosperity?’ The students underlined that environmental destruction was ‘a most acute problem’ of ‘crucial importance to the existence of future generations’. What could be done to stop it? What role did legislation play? In addition to Palmstierna, the other participants included Christer Leijonhufvud of the Swedish National Federation of Industry and a senior judge, Ingemar Ulveson. 41 The following week, Palmstierna travelled to Gothenburg to officially open the provocative

servitude, and providing, as well, future generations of witches. In the following three questions, the authors examine this curious state of affairs in more detail, beginning with an attempt to construct a coherent picture of the power and the nature of demons and to explain their interest in human sexuality. Logically, they should then turn to the other half of the equation and examine the role of the witch herself. But before they do so, they try to address a perceived weak point in their argument, and embark on a long and confusing questio on the possible influence of

’s French delegates and which could conceivably do so among future generations of bishops. This French tradition provided strongly articulated views on episcopal jurisdictional rights and authority as well as, secondarily, on episcopal spirituality. Ultimately, however, the body of representations on episcopacy that swirled within the Catholic church was as noteworthy for its shortcomings, ambiguities and outright contradictions as for its mature ideals. If French bishops sought jurisdictional, spiritual, theological or pastoral models of episcopacy, they would find

explicitly stating in the preamble that ‘[e]njoyment of these rights entail responsibilities and duties [especially the provisions on solidarity] with regard to other persons, the human community and to future generations’. Arguably, all the above proposals are easier said than done. But if properly institutionalized, they would bring about an EU citizenship policy proper, as they ultimately depend on the political will of the member state executives, rather than on an overarching European volonté générale at the grassroots. In this way also, the Union would be equipped to

radiation safety of the population (Russian Federation 1995b) was adopted by the State Duma on 5 December 1995 and signed by President Boris Yeltsin on 9 January 1996. Radiation safety is here defined as conditions under which present and future generations are protected against ionising radiation harmful to their Nuclear safety 121 health (Article 1). The law establishes principles for standardisation, grounding and optimisation in radiation protection assurance (Article 3) and basic hygienic standards for exposure caused by the use of ionising radiation sources on

to consider future generations and longer time scales (Almond 1995; Meyer and Roser 2010; Nixon 2011; Schlosberg 2013; Martinez-­Alier et al. 2016; Davies 2019). Such is the reach of the concept that environmental justice activism and scholarship “has now expanded to encompass almost everything that is unsustainable about the world” (Holifield et al. 2018, 2). In historical terms, the environmental justice movement is a relatively recent ­phenomenon – ­a “millennial” ­movement – ­born in the 1980s out of the civil rights, anti-­toxics, and community health

course of remedying another. In this case, the anti-ecologists seek to remedy their own disparity vis-à-vis their eco-friendly fellow citizens – but they would do so at the expense of future generations. By instituting parity now for practices that would worsen global warming, they would deny their successors the material prerequisites for a viable form of life – thereby violating intergenerational justice. Thus, the anti-ecologists’ claim fails the test of participatory parity. And so this case, too, like same-sex marriage and l’affaire foulard, can be adjudicated on

theme that plays an important role in the whole party literature is that of ethical values. This theme has always featured prominently in the party paper and, especially in the early 1990s, the VB devoted several brochures to it. The core of the party’s view on ethical values is its vision of man, which is purely ethnic nationalist: man cannot be separated from tradition, which ‘reflects the true nature of an ethnic community’ (VB 1990: 11). This indicates an organic vision on the ethnic community, made explicit in the remark that ‘the dead live on in future

The Code amalgamated no less than 15 different environment and natural resource-related Acts, and a special bill was passed to adjust all pertinent legislation to the Code (Cabinet Bill 1997/98:90).
