Abstract

This panel concerns the prospects for different governance arrangements and actor constellations in global sustainability governance to deliver transformative societal change, particularly in the context of achieving the 2030 Agenda and United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The panel invites scholars to present findings and outline new research agendas on effective and transformative modes of governance for sustainable development. Featuring contributions from the Transformative Partnerships 2030 research project, the focus lies especially on arrangements through which the Agenda is meant to be catalysed and advanced, such as multi-stakeholder partnerships, traditional multilateral organisations, and interactions between these systems of transnational and intergovernmental institutions. Are these arrangements capable of producing the required policies for transformative change? Are they capable of producing synergies across goals, and are those synergies the necessary catalyst for societal transformations? Can - or how can - the UN or other IO governance of transnational governance arrangements (i.e., metagovernance) enable or hinder transformative change? This panel offers an array of papers that address these questions. It advances conceptual, methodological and empirical innovation for the study of global sustainability governance and the integration of social, environmental, and economic objectives, especially related to the SDGs.
