Re-engaging with Sustainability in the Anthropocene Era : An Institutional Approach Paperback / softback
by Andrew J. (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor) Hoffman, P. Devereaux (University of Alberta) Jennings
Part of the Elements in Organization Theory series
Re-engaging with Sustainability in the Anthropocene Era applies organization theory to a grand challenge: our entry into the Anthropocene era, a period marked not only by human impact on climate change, but on chemical waste, habitat destruction, and despeciation.
It focuses on institutional theory, modified by political readings of organizations, as one approach that can help us navigate a new course.
Besides offering mechanisms, such as institutional entrepreneurship, social movements, and policy shifts, the institutional-political variant developed here helps analysts understand the framing of scientific facts, the counter-mobilization of skeptics, and the creation of archetypes as new social orders.
