Institute of
Sustainability Governance


The members of the Institute of Sustainability Governance (INSUGO) focus their work on a fundamental question: Which public institutions and regulation systems are necessary to achieve the normative goal of sustainability in a complex and pluralistic society? The answer to this question is provided by a broad scientific approach which is based on research, academic teaching and knowledge transfer with practitioners on topics of public sustainability governance.
