概述

本門課程檢視「永續發展」概念中的替代概念及理論支持。主要焦點放在工業國家的永續問題(如人口老化、永續消費、組織調整等)與開發中國家面臨經濟轉變的永續問題(如控制成長、生產型態的永續性、人口改變的壓力等等)。課程中也探討圍繞著永續性、經濟及科技範圍及制度面的責任。政治體制對經濟表現隱含的關聯。

本門課程符合大學部本系及輔系公共政策必修學分的要求,研究生則需透過閱讀及專題討論對主題做更深度探討。(亦即17.182這門課)

Overview

Examines alternative conceptions and theoretical underpinnings of the notion of "sustainable development." Focuses on the sustainability problems of industrial countries (i.e., aging of populations, sustainable consumption, institutional adjustments, etc.); and of developing states and economies in transition (i.e., managing growth, sustainability of production patterns, pressures of population change, etc.). Explores the sociology of knowledge around sustainability, the economic and technological dimensions and institutional imperatives. Implications for political constitution of economic performance.

17.181 fulfills undergraduate public policy requirement in the major and minor. Graduate students are expected to explore the subject in greater depth through reading and individual research (17.182).
