عنوان مقاله [English]
Throughout history, justice has been regarded as the object of legal knowledge, and in terms of value, it has been defined as comprehensive of values. However, the scope and subject matter of justice are less deliberated. The question of this kind of justice in recent years - in the light of technological advances and the expansion of human hands in nature and, consequently, the danger of destroying the natural and human environment - has become particularly important. Intergenerational justice is trying to make the current generation recognize the right of future generations in natural resources and the environment and to find a way out of the current world of destruction. This effort, of course, has been somewhat effective and has been able to open the door to special literature on international environmental law in international political and judicial institutions. However, such justice cannot yet be considered one of the binding rules for the implementation of existing international law. Intergenerational justice is, at best, a doctrine to move existing rights toward desirable rights and to interpret the rules of international law in a fair and just manner based on the needs of the international community as a whole, which must move towards preserving the common heritage of mankind.
