This all “emerged from discussions held at a workshop jointly hosted by the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute and the Sheffield Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures, entitled ‘Towards an Ecological Political Economy of Contemporary Capitalism.”
And the papers “explore different aspects of a question that arose at the workshop: under what conditions might the state become a force for sustainability, and what opportunities and barriers are presented by contemporary political and economic institutions for bringing these conditions about? In addressing this question, they develop a range of conceptual, empirical, methodological and research-programmatic insights.”
