Overcoming the process-structure divide in conceptions of Social-Ecological Transformation

Stefanie Sievers-Glotzbach and Julia Tschersich

Ecological Economics, 2019, vol. 164, issue C, -

Abstract: A fundamental transformation towards sustainability in face of complex social-ecological challenges needs to initiate deep changes of those incumbent system structures that support unsustainable trajectories, while at the same time encouraging a diversity of alternative practices. A review of transformation approaches towards sustainability shows that these do not (sufficiently) link processes of change at the micro level to deep leverages of change in wider system structures.
