Sustainability Studies


Sustainability has been subjected to many contested meanings since the constitution of Brundtland Commission in 1983, originally meant to emphasize ecological and environmental practices with a perspective of preserving and regenerating natural resources for the benefit of future generations. Recently the term has come to be associated with the relationship between ecological security and social equity. Social science perspectives have contended that sustainability cannot be merely seen in a pure value-neutral scientific terms. It is recognized that the interventions needed to tackle the current ecological and social crisis have to be guided by systemic approaches aiming at changes in the patterns of production and consumption of the developed and developing world.
