Based on his UAS Senior Research Stay in Beijing, Berthold Kuhn (FUB) has published a paper on Sustainable Development Discourses in China
News from Dec 15, 2016
In March 2016, PD Dr. Berthold Kuhn conducted a Senior Research Stay for three weeks at Peking University. There he examined the Chinese discourse on the concept of “Sustainable Development”. An analysis of literature and policy documents, participation in conferences and workshops and conduction of interviews with more than 30 experts, provided valuable insights for PD Dr. Kuhn in the ongoing discourse. In his paper he dealt with the questions of why the concept of “Sustainable Development” has gained such prominence in China, how the discourse is carried out and which actors are involved. Answers to these questions can be found in the article published in the Journal of Sustainable Development by the Canadian Center of Science and Education.
Earlier this year, Kuhn has published another article based on his research stay on Collaborative Governance for Sustainable Development in China. For more details click here.
