The Resilience of (Un)Sustainable Logics in an Emerging Market

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

The management of natural resources by industry is increasingly coming under public scrutiny as high levels of resource consumption are the main cause of detrimental environmental change. However, the reduction of resource consumption may hinder societies to provide basic needs and cause severe humanitarian problems in developing economies. Therefore, the modern global society faces a major challenge when they are expected to balance the reduction of worldwide inequalities meanwhile achieving a globally sustainable level of resource flows. This article addresses these issues by investigating the responses of social actors for reduce pollution without aggravating the problems generate by poverty. We argue that the degrowth is necessary by highly challenging strategy for sustainability. The paper investigates how changing institutional logics, figurations of actors, and social processes shape the politics of resilience. We discuss the need to develop policy instruments capable of creating a space in which to negotiate the gradual degrowth of industrial activities.
