VII. MIT PRESS SERIES on GLOBAL ACCORD

Series on Global Environmental Accord: Strategies for Sustainability

The Series provides the intellectual logic and rationale for the Consortium on Global Accords for Sustainable Development (known as the Global Accords Consortium). The core mission of the Consortium is to "reduce the gap between Knowledge and Policy". Membership from (a) institutions of science and technology, (b) business and industry, and (c) governance and governments provides a holistic perspective on global dilemmas. 

The series develops the analytical and theoretical underpinnings crucial to understanding and implementing effective decision-making approaches to managing the global environment. It adopts an integrated perspective on national, international, cross-border, and cross-jurisdictional problems, priorities, and purposes. 

Of particular interest are works that address broad theoretical questions concerning the development of sustainable global policies or that address paradigm transformation issues, from the perspectives of states and nongovernmental organizations.
