Sustainable Labor

IHS researcher Beate Littig contributed to the article "Sustainable Labor - Promoting the Social-Ecological Transformation of the Labor Economy" that has been published in the journal GAIA. The article discusses the development of a concept of socio-ecological transformation towards a sustainable labor economy. It furthermore tackles the issue that labor still has an underrated role in the discourse about sustainability. The article therefore reevaluates the work of Karl Polanyi to get to a broader concept of labor that can be integrated in the discussion about sustainability.
