Sustainability and Politics

How can we proactively influence the development of society and the economy while at the same time stabilize the natural basis of human life on planet earth? The co-optimization of economic, social and ecological developments is at the heart of any sustainable policy-making. At the Chair of Sustainability and Politics, this issue is addressed in research, teaching and practice. Four key topical areas are addressed:

Sustainability in policy-making and public administration

Sustainability, policy-making and the economy

Sustainability as process of conflict, communication and cooperation
