Process Studies on Sustainable Economy

Our research group investigates the becoming of sustainable economies in multiple contexts. We build on process philosophy and focus on understanding the enactors, enactments, and enablers—as well as their relations—relevant for a sustainable economy. Recent phenomena investigated include affordances, agency, culture, degrowth, social practices, self-provisioning, sufficiency, and technology. The research connects processes on the macro scale of an economy, like global matter-energy throughput, supranational governance, and sectoral policies, to the micro scale of economic organization, including business management, entrepreneurship, household consumption, and individual/communal transitions.
