'In 16 chapters by experts from across Europe, Reflexive Governance for Sustainable Development explores strategies, policies and programs that may help move us through an era of uncertainty.' -- Sustainability: Science, Practice, and Policy
'Innovations are introduced in the hope that they will have positive impacts on their targets, but also in the certain knowledge that there will be negative and unintended effects as well. In time, these less desired effects may also come to generate innovative and adaptive responses in a continuous, "reflexive" process. This book sets out to analyse the consequences for sustainability research and policy analysis. This collection, by many of the leading thinkers in the field, blends sophisticated theoretical discussion with practical perspectives on how to deal with the conundrum - the only thing certain about the future is that you'll be wrong about it!' -- Frans Berkhout, Vrije University, The Netherlands
