The section Environmental Governance and Politics (EGP) consists of a team of social scientists who critically reflect on, and contribute to, sustainability transformations. We develop useful insights into the why and how of such processes, which can serve to enable, accelerate, deepen and broaden the transformation towards a global sustainable and just society. For this purpose, we engage in research, teaching and collaboration with societal partners. We are specialized in (the relationships among) agriculture, animal, biodiversity, circular economy, climate change, energy, and freshwater governance. We focus on transdisciplinary research, incorporate futures studies, and mostly apply qualitative methods and comparative analyses. Theoretically, we mainly use discursive, institutional, and practice-based perspectives.
