Sustainable Development Governance Structures in the European Union
Abstract:The governance dimension of policies for sustainable development, and sustainable development strategies in particular, has received increasing attention during the past few years. This is probably because sustainable development: a. as a concept, or approach, is both soft and overarching, concerning many policy areas, b. "moves" all levels of policy making (local, regional, national, EU, global); and c. "moving towards a more sustainable development" is a process widely understood as a learning process (political in a narrow sense, societal in a wider sense), which touches upon all governance dimensions of democracies.
