Course Description: In tackling climate change on a global level, not only developed countries but also developing and emerging countries need to find a way to cut their emissions. However, those countries mostly insist on their right to economic development. This course reviews the respective literature and considers the perspectives they offer for environmentally sustainable growth models. In particular, different models of sustainable development, Green Growth, environmental justice and equity are discussed as well as technological leapfrogging of emerging economies. Based on those models, students consider empirical case studies and their perspectives. The course questions if, how, and under which conditions economic growth and environmental sustainability can be achieved at the same time. The aim is to understand those conditions from a comparative perspective by considering political, institutional, social and economic contexts and how those shape pathways to sustainable development.
