Transgovernance: Beyond Sustainability Governance? 

The term 'transgovernance' emerged from the Transgov research project at IASS, Potsdam, in 2011. The project aimed at finding answers for the implementation problems of sustainable development strategies and policies. We found these answers in principles based on six social science concepts or theory fields. The first publication was the report compiled by Roel in 't Veld: Transgovernance: The Quest for Governance of Sustainable Development. In 2012, the second publication was issued, edited by Louis: Transgovernance: Advancing Sustainability Governance. Both publications are online available for free, see below.

Deutsch Louis Meuleman & Falk Schmidt - GlobalCompact Deutschland 2011, pp 54-46

In diesem Artikel stellen wir Überlegungen vor, Nachhaltigkeitsgovernance neu zu betrachten. Ein halbes Jahr vor der Grossen UN Nachhaltigkeitskonferenz in Rio de Janeiro ist es geboten dass wir uns fragen, warum wir bislang in zentralen Fragen nachhaltiger Entwicklung so langsam vorankommen. Wir wissen alle, dass wir dringend nachhaltigere Prozesse und Lebensstile in Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft brauchen.   Download Artikel

This article asks why progress as regards central challenges is so slow, and proposes new considerations on sustainability governance.
