“General knowledge of the importance of the term metagovernance is relatively limited. Therefore, the recent publication by Louis Meuleman “Metagovernance for Sustainability” can be a significant contribution to a better general understanding of this concept.(…) This book in a very impressive and reasoned way presents the importance and complexity of metagovernance”.

@amwellstead@r_biesbroek@KatrienTermeer@WURgovernance I agree, Jessop coined it, around same time, but thats in a BOOK. Article could be of interest if books and chapters had been part of the analysis. My Springer book 2008 on metagovernance (ggle scholar 412 x cit) is not even mentioned ;-). Is this systematic and is this science?
@JeroenCandel I fully agree, and it is a shame to see a former scientist turning into a politician, while still using an academic status for this message, where a political hat would have been more appropriate.
It would be a travesty if neither Vestager or Barnier got the Commission Presidency, or even Timmermans, people who’ve worked tirelessly in Europe’s interest over the past years. I’m skeptical if EU leaders could sell anything dramatically otherwise to the EP. #EUCO #EU
@AnneWillTalk@GretaThunberg Das stimmt so nicht: Jede Reduktion von CO2-Ausstoss und Ressourcenverbrauch is positiv und nützlich. Aus der Gesamtsumme aller Einsparungen wird eine globale Temperatur berechnet (in Modellrechnungen), inkl. ob das 2 bzw. 1,5 Grad-Ziel erreicht wird. Das ist ein Kontinuum.
