Democracy and Resilience in the Anthropocene

Call for Papers 2015: 2015 Canberra Conference on Earth System Governance: “Democracy and Resilience in the Anthropocene”. In recent years, particularly since the global financial crisis, there has been a surge of interest in concepts such as the ‘green economy’ and ‘green growth’: but has this moved us toward building economically and environmentally resilient economies? This stream welcomes papers that examine the rise of green economic discourses, the role of financial, trade and investment institutions and actors in environmental governance as well as broader topics such as consumption, ecological modernization, and the limits to growth.
