4. DVPW-Thementagung: Making Sustainability Happen: Global Politics Meets Planetary Boundaries

This „DVPW-Thementagung” brings together researchers from global environmental politics and sustainability studies, International Political Economy, and International Relations to discuss the role of the concept of planetary boundaries in (the study of) global politics. We aim to advance the integration of so far rather dispersed insights in these fields in order to shed light on a range of practices of global environmental and sustainability governance in specific transnational sites and broader political contexts. We draw attention to how the governance of planetary boundaries is shaped by and shapes key international norms, the interplay of various state and nonstate actors, and the setup of the global political economy at large. This engagement will help to clarify how the concept figures in global environmental governance, interstate relations, specific domains of the global political economy and certain fields of study themselves.
