Governance and Inclusive Development, Amsterdam Institute of Social Science Research
Governance and Inclusive Development (GID) scrutinizes development dynamics at various geographical, jurisdictional and temporal scales, realizing that these are situated in different but interconnected multi-level processes. GID analyses and rethinks dominant development paradigms, and engages with international, national and local development practices, policies and debates to identify viable and socially just alternatives.
It thereby emphasizes that development pathways are affecting and affected by ‘planetary boundaries’ and climate change.
- Governance for environmental justice in the Anthropocene
- Governance for social justice
- Politics of knowledge
You can find more information on these themes in the full strategy document linked below.
The team focuses on the strategic issues of multi-level (glocal) governance and inclusive development. The reason for doing this is that drivers of change and development processes emerge and interact at all scale levels in unpredictable ways. Such dynamics include feedback loops at primary, secondary and tertiary levels.
