The 3D Initiative (i.e. Network for Intergenerational Justice) is a new-established neetwork of (around 15) civil society movements, research institutes and non-profit initiatives –reflecting different approaches and views– that aims to underline the current intergenerational inequity and deficit in the  Greek society (www.3dinitiative.gr). The main objective of this panel is to enrich the discussion of the "intergenerational deficit" in Greece with results and approaches based on (the presented) academic and research work, emphasizing in public finance/debt; retirement scheme; unemployment; inequality; and institutions.

The panel proposal includes five papers from scholars and research fellows that participate in the 3D Initiative coming from universities and research institutes in Greece and abroad (i.e. Athens University of Economics and Business, University of Athens, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Politecnico di Milano, Centre of Planning and Economic Research, Institute for Social and Economic Research / University of Essex, diaNEOsis, Crisis Observatory / ELIAMEP). The panel is proposed on behalf of the Greek Politics Specialist Group, which is a member of the 3D Initiative.
