GSSD Research Initiatives

The GSSD initiative is an integral part of a broader research program focusing on sources and consequences of international transformations. GSSD focuses on the role of knowledge and knowledge networking in the domain of Sustainable Development. Sustainability, per se, is one of the most critical and complex challenges at the global and local level and calls into question some of the most serious scholarly and theoretical assumptions about development that have been inherited from past century. GSSD background

While the overall research program examines complexity in international transformations, GSSD-related research focuses specifically on knowledge-sustainability linkages. Ongoing activities cluster around three themes, namely:

1) Globalization & International Relations
2) Information Technology and Sustainable Development
3) Cyber Politics in International Relations
