(p.1) Introduction
Justice Across Ages

Juliana Uhuru Bidadanure

Oxford University Press

Justice Across Ages is a book about how we should respond to inequalities patterned on age membership. Our social fabric is structured around age and so inequalities between age groups are numerous and multifaceted. And yet, political theorists have spared little time thinking about how we should respond to these disparities. Are they akin to those patterned on gender or race? Or is there something relevantly distinctive about them that mitigates the need for concern? This introductory chapter presents these questions and shows why they matter. It introduces the book’s main aim—developing a theory of justice between co-existing generations—and also provides an overview of the book’s approach, main contributions and structure.

Keywords:   age inequalities, age-group justice, intergenerational justice, youth vulnerabilities, equality, egalitarian justice
