Inhalt: UPDATE 24.03.2020 COURSE TAKES PLACE IN VIRTUAL FORM AS LIVE SEMINAR SESSIONS. We will use Zoom as a video conferencing system. Please sign in with your full first and last name. We would ask all students to ensure a strong and stable internet connection, if at all possible. Please use a suitable device to participate in class and group discussions. Lecturer and student presentations will use Zoom's desktop sharing function. Seminar content Why and how does governance matter for attaining sustainbility? This course provides a comprehensive overview of concepts and theoretical approaches in environmental and sustainability governance and applies these to real-world cases. It is based on intensive reading of key texts. The course starts with a short lecturers’ introduction into governance in the context of environmental sustainability and an introduction into governance analysis. This is followed by a role play called the “Melbourne Water Game”, where students jointly engage in a real-world interdisciplinary decision-making case, shedding light on the complexity of environmental and sustainability governance. In the main part of the course, around a dozen current concepts, approaches and themes in governing environmental sustainability will be introduced. These may include: - Environmental sustainability and public policy following Rio 1992 / Governance and complexity - Governing the commons and social-ecological systems - Good governance: legitimacy and effectiveness - Participatory and collaborative governance - Network governance - Scales and institutional fit - Multi-level governance - Sustainability transitions and transition management - Institutional dynamics and institutional decline - Global governance: global institutions and governance of teleconnections - Local governance and Local Agenda 21 - Learning and reflexive, adaptive governance - Evidence-based policy and governance / science-policy interface and transdisciplinarity Usually, each concept/approach is discussed in a separate session. A typical seminar session is structured as follows: 1) Short introduction to the session topic by lecturers, 2) Intense discussion of one core text (which was read by all students), 3) Short student presentation of an empirical case, 4) group work on applying the concept/approach to the empirical case, 5) presentation of group findings and concluding discussion. From time to time, however, this pattern is interrupted by special sessions dedicated to either case analyses or invited presentations on research projects. In the case analysis sessions, student groups are provided with a real-world case of a problem of environmental (un)sustainability. Students discuss which concept/approach would be suitable for the analysis of that case, and then conduct the analysis, followed by a short group presentation of the outcome and a critical reflection on choices, strengths and weaknesses of the selected approach. In the research project sessions, current governance research at Leuphana and beyond will be presented by invited researchers and discussed with the students.

Globale Nachhaltigkeit - Vergleichende Länderanalysen (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Harald Heinrichs

Termin:
wöchentlich | Montag | 16:15 - 17:45 | 06.04.2020 - 10.07.2020 | C 16.223

Inhalt: UPDATE 24.03.2020 VERANSTALTUNG FINDET IN VIRTUELLER FORM STATT 193 Staaten haben sich im September 2015 auf die Agenda 2030 und damit auf die globalen Nachhaltigkeitsziele (SDG's) geeinigt. Da die Agenda nicht völkerrechtlich verbindlich ist, stellt sich die Frage, welche Bedeutung die Nationalstaaten der Agenda zukommen lassen und inwieweit sie sich tatsächlich auf den Weg zu einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung machen. Mittels vergleichender Länderanalyse sollen im Seminar ausgewählte Industrie-, Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländer untersucht werden. Neben der Nachhaltigkeitspolitik im engeren Sinne sollen dabei auch die gesellschaftlichen, wirtschaftlichen und politischen (Kontext-)Bedingungen betrachtet werden.

As soon as this will be possible again, the seminar will be accompanied by a one-day excursion to Salzgitter, to the nuclear waste deposit Schacht Konrad or the Asse mine.
