Intergenerational Justice and Public Policy in Europe
Pieter Vanhuysse (2014), OSE Opinion Paper No.16, 17p.
 
Population ageing right across the advanced welfare states has led to a renewed popular awareness of the notion of justice between the generations, but also to renewed academic interest. This paper reports on the Intergenerational Justice Index (IJI), and on how EU member states perform along its four dimensions. Three of the IJI dimensions measure outcomes that leave legacy burdens to younger and future generations: the ecological footprint; early-life starting conditions; and the fiscal burdens shouldered by the current young generations. The fourth IJI dimension measures policy effort, in the form of a new indicator of the overall pro-elderly bias in social spending.

Post-crisis economic governance in Latvia: the European Semester, the Balance-of-Payments programme, and euro accession convergence
Edgars Eihmanis, University of Amsterdam, OSE Research paper No.13

Exploring Latvia's recent economic governance under the European Semester, the Balance-of-Payments programme and euro accession convergence, this OSE Research paper finds that the Latvian government has pursued a cherry-picking strategy, predominantly focusing on compliance with the euro accession criteria and fiscal consolidation - even beyond the Commission's requirements. Relatedly, compared with the more austere national authorities, the Commission in Latvia has played the role of social advocate.
