Global REsources And Sustainability of European modernization

Project: Onderzoek direct



This project wishes to respond to contemporary EU resource challenges. It develops a cultural, social, economic, technological, and environmental history perspective on the current EU societal challenge of European resource security and sustainable resource use.

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.

- 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.

Omschrijving in begrijpelijke taal

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.
