Louis Meuleman, a fellow with the Center for Governance and Sustainability, has contributed to and edited a new book about the interplay of politics, science, and media as they relate to sustainability governance, Transgovernance: Advancing Sustainability Governance.
Alexander Perez-Carmona, Jamel Napolitano, and Falk Schmidt also contributed essays on a wide variety of topics including the cultural dimension of sustainable development, the emergence of a “knowledge economy” surrounding sustainability discussions, and its impacts on governance. The book is topical given the recent fervor surrounding sustainability and governance discussions in the wake of Rio+20.
Meuleman is an accomplished lifelong academic and public service employee, having held such posts as project director of the TransGov Project of the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Postdamn, Germany and head of unit and project director at the Netherlands Ministry for Housing, Spatial Planning, and the Environment. He currently works as a national expert for environmental issues at the European Commission.
