Our research group investigates the becoming of sustainable economies in multiple contexts. We build on process philosophy and focus on understanding the enactors, enactments, and enablers—as well as their relations—relevant for a sustainable economy. Recent phenomena investigated include affordances, agency, culture, degrowth, social practices, self-provisioning, sufficiency, and technology.

The research connects processes on the macro scale of an economy, like global matter-energy throughput, supranational governance, and sectoral policies, to the micro scale of economic organization, including business management, entrepreneurship, household consumption, and individual/communal transitions.

We employ a diversity of qualitative and mixed methods, as well as approach phenomena from a variety of conceptual perspectives. While the intellectual influences of the group span from hermeneutics and classical pragmatism to critical theory, we share a passion for advancing processual, dialectical thought and the study of praxis.

Examples of approaches concurrently developed include ecophenomenology, ecological realism, theories of social practice, and relational constructionism.
