The 2023 General Conference of the European Consortium of Political Research (ECPR) was held at the beginning of September at Charles University in Prague. The SABio research group in Political Science led by Karen Siegel participated in several panels.
Their paper “Promoting (un)just transitions? Interdependencies, trade-offs and risks in bioeconomy development in South America” was part of the panel “Critical Approaches to Bioeconomy Politics and Policy” chaired by Giorgio Varanini (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin).
Moreover, the paper “The emergence of alternative sociotechnical imaginaries in Argentina’s agricultural sector: lessons for democracy and sustainability” by Melisa Deciancio and Karen Siegel, soon forthcoming in the German Political Science Quarterly, was part of the panel “Sustainability imaginaries: competing visions, expectations, and futurity in global environmental politics” chaired by Jens Marquardt (Technische Universität Darmstadt) and Antonia Graf (University of Münster).
Karen Siegel also organised and chaired the panel “Sustainability transitions and inequality” together with Carolin Zorell (Örebro University).
