SOCL20077 Theories and Concepts
of Sustainable Development
Sustainability has become part of a dominant discourse
relating to environmental security and 'balanced' development.
Yet, the meaning of sustainability is based upon particular assumptions about
what is to be 'sustained', by whom, for whom,
in what location, and over what time period. This course traces
contributions to the sustainability debate and locates existing
arguments about sustainability within competing social discourses.
It traces how power and knowledge in society shape the ways sustainability
is understood and practiced.
