Collste, D. (2021). Modeling Korpi and Palme’s ‘Paradox of Redistribution and Strategies of Equality.’ In R. Y. Cavana, B. C. Dangerfield, O. V. Pavlov, M. J. Radzicki, & I. D. Wheat (Eds.), Feedback Economics: Economic Modeling with System Dynamics (pp. 191–213). Springer International Publishing. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-030-67190-7
A new book entitled Feedback Economics: Economic Modeling with System Dynamics is the first comprehensive collection of the variety of ways system dynamics thinking can be applied to economic matters. The book enriches contemporary economic debate by shedding light on the feedback dynamics in economic systems that are often neglected, enabling the linking of economic and sustainability issues. Centre researcher David Collste...

Marwan, N., Donges, J., Donner, R., Eroglu, D.. 2021. Nonlinear time series analysis of palaeoclimate proxy records. Quaternary Science Reviews. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.quascirev.2021.107245
Identifying and characterising dynamical regime shifts, critical transitions or potential tipping points in palaeoclimate time series is relevant for improving the understanding of often highly nonlinear Earth system dynamics. Beyond linear changes in time series properties such as mean, variance, or trend, these nonlinear regime shifts can manifest as changes in signal predictability, regularity, complexity, or higher-order s...
Donges, J., Lucht, W., Cornell, S., Heitzig, J., Barfuss, W., Lade, S., Schlüter, M.. 2021. Taxonomies for structuring models for World–Earth systems analysis of the Anthropocene: subsystems, their interactions and social–ecological feedback loops. Earth System Dynamics. http://dx.doi.org/10.5194/esd-12-1115-2021
In the Anthropocene, the social dynamics of human societies have become critical to understanding planetary-scale Earth system dynamics. The conceptual foundations of Earth system modelling have externalised social processes in ways that now hinder progress in understanding Earth resilience and informing governance of global environmental change.New approaches to global modelling of the human World are needed to address these ...
Folke, C., Haider, L., Lade, S., Norström, A., Rocha, J.. 2021. Resilience and social-ecological systems: A handful of frontiers. Global Environmental Change. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gloenvcha.2021.102400
Fifteen years have passed since the publication in Global Environmental Change of the article Resilience: the emergence of a perspective of social-ecological systems analyses (Folke 2006). Resilience of social-ecological systems, now widely spread, is found in many academic fields, contributing exciting work and novel insights. Social-ecological resilience thinking has become part of practice, policy, and business, ranging fr...
Radosavljevic, S., Haider, L., Lade, S., Schlüter, M.. 2021. Implications of poverty traps across levels. World Development. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.worlddev.2021.105437
Recent research has demonstrated the multidimensional nature of poverty and the multi-level organization of social-ecological systems that display poverty traps. The traps on these different levels can reinforce each other, and therefore multi-level traps pose particular challenges for poverty alleviation. Yet, poverty trap models rarely consider more than one level of organization and only a few attributes of the system at ea...
Chambers, J., Wyborn, C., Ryan, M., Reid, R., Riechers, M., Serban, A., Bennett, N., Cvitanovic, C., Fernández-Giménez, M., Galvin, K., Goldstein, B., Klenk, N., Tengö, M., Brennan, R., Cockburn, J., Hill, R., Munera, C., Nel, J., Österblom, H., Bednarek, A., Bennett, E., Brandeis, A., Charli-Joseph, L., Chatterton, P., Curran, K., Dumrongrojwatthana, P., Durán, A., Fada, S., Gerber, J., Green, J., Guerrero, A., Haller, T., Horcea-Milcu, A., Leimona, B., Montana, J., Rondeau, R., Spierenburg, M., Steyaert, P., Zaehringer, J., Gruby, R., Hutton, J., Pickering, T.. 2021. Six modes of co-production for sustainability. Nature Sustainability. http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/s41893-021-00755-x
The promise of co-production to address complex sustainability challenges is compelling. Yet, co-production, the collaborative weaving of research and practice, encompasses diverse aims, terminologies and practices, with poor clarity over their implications. To explore this diversity, we systematically mapped differences in how 32 initiatives from 6 continents co-produce diverse outcomes for the sustainable development of ecos...
Barthel, S., Colding, J., Hiswåls, A., Thalén, P., Turunen, P.. 2021. Urban green commons for socially sustainable cities and communities. Nordic Social Work Research. http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/2156857x.2021.1947876
In these times of global pandemics and climate crisis, social sustainability has become a crucial issue within diverse sectors and disciplines. This article aims to broaden the discussions on social sustainability in general, and in relation to community work within professional social work in particular. By means of a cross-disciplinary bricolage approach –with a focus on the commons – we aim to construct a holistic view of ...

The coronavirus pandemic entailed varying restrictions on access, movement and social behavior in populations around the world. Knowledge about how people coped with “soft-touch” restrictions can inform urban spatial planning strategies that enhance resilience against future pandemics. We analyzed data from an online place-based survey on 2845 places across Sweden that respondents abstained from visiting, visited with similar...

Habits are the fundamental basis for many of our daily actions and can be powerful barriers to behavioural change. Still, habits are not included in most narratives, theories, and interventions applied to sustainable behaviour. One reason societies struggle to reach policy goals and people fail to change towards more pro-environmental lifestyles might be that many behaviours are now bound by strong habits that override knowl...
Raymond, C., Kaaronen, R., Giusti, M., Linder, N., Barthel, S.. 2021. Engaging with the pragmatics of relational thinking, leverage points and transformations – Reply to West et al.. Ecosystems and People. http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/26395916.2020.1867645
We reply to ‘A relational turn for sustainability science?’ by West et al. We commend West et al. for their salient comments about the relational turn. Yet the article leaves us wondering about the methodological challenges and pragmatics of relational thinking. The authors omitted important tensions in relational thinking discussion about how to assess dynamic socio-ecological systems, and how to lever change for sustainabil...
