Overview

Nine European, Canadian, and American academics contribute 11 chapters exploring the challenge of implementing sustainable development (SD) in high-consumption, Western democracies when viewed as a markedly "different" type of program-policy task, and how existing forms of governance can adapt to specified functions of SD. The text evolved from a series of workshops held in Europe in 2001 and 2002 as part of a strategic research project based at the Centre for Development and the Environment at the U. of Oslo. The volume features detailed analysis of American and European policy research and of the challenges faced within the European Union, as well as in- depth examination of specific countries, including Sweden, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, and Norway.
