Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This research essentially responds to the need of a transition towards new, more sustainable economic and financial solutions to strengthen regions since our societies face numerous human-induced – financial, environmental, debt and inequality – crises. We suggest to explore the link between alternative economies and sustainable finance, and their potential contributions to socio-ecological transitions in European regions. We do so by recognising that transitions are disruptive, directed but open-ended social processes and, by their very nature, political projects, which require institutions to adapt and change.
