The role of the state in the governance of sustainable development (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Michael Rose

wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 16:15 - 17:45 | 02.04.2024 - 05.07.2024 | C 14.102 b Seminarraum

Inhalt: Even though NGOs, big business and transnational actor networks shape the governance of sustainable development both globally and locally, nation states are still vital to do this in a legitimate and (hopefully) effective way. It was the nations of the world that agreed on Agenda 21 in 1992 and Agenda 2030 in 2015 with its global Sustainable Development Goals, and it is precisely these nations that must implement these programs. Since the UN Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, many countries have begun to align their institutional arrangements and policies with sustainable development. In 2015, the UN Sustainable Development Summit in New York reinforced this development. In addition to the national sustainability strategies and sustainability councils already established in many countries, further institutions and policies have been added to anchor the global guiding principle of sustainability in politics, society and public administration. It is an open question, though, to what extent these formal adjustments really (are intended to) lead to sustainable development. In this seminar, we will analyze and reflect on the possibilities and limits of the state to govern towards sustainability. We will engage with different conceptual, normative, critical, empirical and methodological perspectives on this topic, which will help us to develop and discuss our own research questions and designs for the term papers (depending on the number of students who wish to take their module examination in this seminar).
