Metatheoretical Perspectives on Sustainability Journeys In Press

Today, my paper — “Metatheoretical Perspectives on Sustainability Journeys: Evolutionary, Relational and Durational” — was published on the Research Policy website. Co-authored with Raghu Garud (Pennsylvania State University), the paper examines what we term evolutionary, relational and durational perspectives on sustainability journeys. Each perspective emphasizes different facets of sustainability – shifts in selection environments, reconfigurations of emergent networks, and intertemporal comparisons and contrasts. We conclude the paper by discussing implications for sustainability policy, strategy and research.
