The  Sustainable Governance Indicators (SGI) examine governance and policymaking in the 41 OECD member states in order to evaluate each country’s need for and ability to carry out reform. Similar to the Bertelsmann Stiftung’s Transformation Index (BTI), the SGI are divided into a Status Index and Management Index, which are calculated using quantitative data from international organizations and then supplemented by qualitative assessments from recognized country experts. The latest release of the SGI, which are updated every two years, took place in March 2011.

Considerable Deficits in Intergenerational Justice

Most OECD states maintain their wealth and prosperity at the expense of their children and succeeding generations. They are thus endangering not only their own future but are also acting unfairly towards their own descendants. Those are just some of the findings from an international study carried out by the Bertelsmann Stiftung on intergenerational justice in 29 OECD member states.
