It is being increasingly realized that sustainable development can be achieved only through democracy and value diversity. This collection of essays explores both novel and established means by which economics can combine with deliberative decision making processes to generate sustainability. The
volume for the first time, establishes a link between economics, sustainability, and democracy. The scholarship fills a gap between ecological economics and deliberative processes and in that way the volume scores over present available literature in this field.
Teachers and students of
development economics, politics, and sociology; and policymakers seeking links between sustainability and development will find the volume useful.
