Intergenerational Wellbeing

CPD’s Intergenerational Wellbeing Program works on policy challenges central to fostering social mobility and tackling disadvantage over the long term, both in Australia and further abroad across the Asia-Pacific. How should wellbeing be measured? How do we understand concepts like fairness, growth and justice across generations? Can intergenerational equity be achieved in the Australian political context? What is the relationship between security, trade and migration in fostering wellbeing and regional order? These questions are fundamental to the program.
