The Politics of Sustainability (2101GIR)

Sustainability is one of today's major buzzwords. But, beyond all the rhetoric, what does sustainability, and unsustainability, mean in practice? Using contemporary case studies throughout, this course seeks to answer these questions by exploring the politics and power relations of environmental sustainability both nationally and globally; the business-government-environment relationship that underpins it; and the ideas, forces and actors that shape it. Evidence-based science might underpin it, but it is the politics of sustainability that decides it. Incompatible: 2101GIR AND 2101PPP (The Business of Sustainability AND Governance for Sustainable Enterprise)
