Abstract

This panel welcomes theoretically and critically-informed papers that address governance and policy aspects of our environmental crises. Issues of environmental quality, climate change and resource scarcity infuse every aspect of public policy and need to take into account increasingly complex socio-political contexts. Our understanding of the causal factors, drivers, risks and responses to environmental crises remain highly contested, and continue to be a major source of tension in policy discourses, processes and implementation. Well-established concepts and paradigms such as sustainable development are being reinterpreted in novel contexts, and themes such as ecological modernization are giving way to demands for more wide-scale social transformation and regime change. It is essential that scholarship in the field of environmental policy develops to take into account this changing context, and to offer critical, reflexive and progressive insights that can inform future dimensions of environmental and sustainability policy.
