Global REsources And Sustainability of European modernization

Project: Research direct

Project Details


Through a series of workshops, GREASE builds a research network and research agenda to explore the historical dynamics of these entanglements. GREASE identifies and synthesizes relevant literatures, and connects these to ongoing policy and stakeholder debates on present-day well-being and sustainability challenges.

Through a series of workshops:

- GREASE brings together scholars working on relevant resource and sustainability history from different historical disciplines in 10 different European countries;

- GREASE initiates a dialogue between European and non-European scholars;

- GREASE organizes debates between scholars and several societal stakeholders, including resource policy makers and statistical offices working on sustainability and well-being monitoring.

Layman's description

The program argues that sustainability issues in neither the Global South, nor in Europe, should be studied in geographical isolation. Through all kinds of 'sustainability telecouplings', the histories of modernization, inequality, well-being and (un)sustainability in the Global North and the Global South became entangled.
