We are thrilled to announce the release of our latest journal, Volume 13, Issue 2 (2022), featuring insightful research on pressing issues impacting our society: https://www2.hu-berlin.de/transcience/page5.htm
In this edition, various authors delve into topics such as environmental governance, socio-environmental conflicts, and the ethical implications of prevailing narratives of socio-environmental transition. Articles include an examination of Chile’s New Institutional Framework for Environmental Governance by Alejandro Pelfini, Adrián Beling, and Julien Vanhulst, an analysis of agricultural systems’ foresight exercises by Sheila Heimenrath, and a study of inequality in development discourse through visual analyses of digital media by Gian-Louis Hernandez and Albert Denk. Additionally, Elizabeth Carrigan explores the ethical implications of dominant narratives of socio-environmental transition through a feminist framework of environmental subjectivity, Anna-Zoë Herr examines the role of ‘hope’ in climate change narratives, and Adrian Schlegel critiques the instrumental reason that structures institutions addressing ecological and social crises. Lastly, Albert Denk contributes with a review of “Deconstructing Human Development: From the Washington Consensus to the 2030 Agenda” by Juan Telleria.
We are grateful to the editorial team for their hard work in bringing this issue to fruition, and we hope it will contribute to ongoing discussions in these fields.
