WIFO, Arsenal Object 20, 1030 Vienna



"Environmental challenges are, at their root, social problems that arise from income and power inequality. Thus, inequality is an environmental issue just as environmental degradation is a social issue (forming a “social-ecological nexus”), and solutions must address them jointly through principles and institutions rooted in justice."

Éloi Laurent presented a two-sided “social-ecological” approach to offer both analytical and empirical insights into the dynamics of this relationship on the 20th of May, in Vienna.  Find his OFCE Working Paper "Social Ecology: Exploring the missing link in sustainable development" here. Before the lecture Éloi Laurent held a workshop at WIFO presenting core issues from his new book "Un nouveau monde économique".

Éloi Laurent is a senior economist at OFCE (Sciences Po, Paris) and a Visiting Professor at Stanford University. A former aide in the French Parliament and for the French Prime Minister, his current research agenda focuses on environmental sustainability, welfare economics and new indicators of well-being and sustainability.
