Meta-Analysis – Strategies of Sustainability in Politics and Economics

In the project a Sustainability Atlas will be developed, in which a national and international comparative overview is given on selected governmental and business strategies of sustainable development. Thereby, the underlying (meta-) conceptions of sustainable development, which are the basis of the different sustainability strategies in politics and economics are identified, categorized, and analyzed. Further, the mechanisms of institutionalization as well as instruments of implementation are investigated.
Particularly the question of how public (also sub-national and local) and private strategies of sustainability influence each other will be evaluated. In this context, we also will examine similarities and differences between them and eventual transfer potentials between both objects of research.
In the course of the two-year project, roughly 20 case studies will be conducted for the public and private sector that will be analyzed in 5-6 major studies.
Furthermore, it will be analyzed how different approaches of sustainability effect innovation policies and –programmes as well as how or to what extend they are integrated into innovation policies.
