About this book

Applies the advanced policy analysis technique of triangulation to what is now the world's most complex public policy challenge: sustainable development. Four approaches are used to analyse the sustainable development controversy that recently arose in Science magazine and the journal Ecological Applications. These different approaches prove highly potent in defamiliarizing conventional wisdom about sustainable development. Ultimately, the practical implications of these conclusions are drawn out in a detailed case study of ecosystem management.


Part 1 Analyzing policy issues of high uncertainty and complexity. Part 2 The sustainable development controversy: introduction; sustainable development and Girardian economics; sustainable development and cultural theory; sustainable development and critical theory; sustainable development and the local justice framework; triangulating on sustainable development. Part 3 The sharp edge of the sword - a case of sustainable development.
