Reflexive Governance for Sustainable Development

books by Jan-Peter Voss, Dierk Bauknecht & René Kemp (Eds)

Publisher: Edward Elgar

This book deals with the issue of sustainable development in a novel and innovative way. It examines the governance implications of reflexive modernisation – the condition that societal development is endangered by its own side-effects. With conceptualising reflexive governance the book leads a way out of endless quarrels about the definition of sustainability and into a new mode of collective action.
