Sustainability transitions from an ecological economic perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The concept of sustainability transition is widely used, and the desirability
of such transitions is generally emphasized. However, various authors and
research fields attach widely different meanings to the concept, particularly
with regard to the degree of radicality implied. This brief commentary
introduces an ecological economic perspective on sustainability transitions,
which can be considered one of the more radical versions of the concept.
First, the ecological economic understanding of the challenges is presented,
and second, some topical aspects of the research agenda of the field and
some of its close cousins are outlined.
