KOSMOS CONFERENCE

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin | KOSMOS CONFERENCE | Program | Topical Sessions in Expert Forum and Poster Session | 2. Democracy, governance, and societal conflicts in a globalized world

2. Democracy, governance, and societal conflicts in a globalized world

We are looking back to decades were pressing sustainability problems are already well-known. Textbooks are full with policy instruments that, if introduced, would solve those problems effectively and possibly even in an efficient and just way. Yet, many of the most severe environmental problems have not sufficiently been resolved. Some people call for more strict top-down governance, while others request more participatory approaches, and even others conceive unresolved sustainability problems as a threat to democracy.  We thus welcome contributions that study the interplay of governance mechanisms, opportunities for and barriers to an effective, just and equitable implementation of the sustainable development goals.
