Here we propose a framework for considering the justice issues of industrial cluster decarbonisation, a pressing challenge confronting many industrialised economies. Industrial clusters are large, multi-point source emitters, users of energy and employers of regional and national significance. In the UK, establishing low carbon industrial clusters...
The sustainability transitions field has been dominated by studies on single systems. Expanding the scope to Deep Transitions involving interactions between a broad array of socio-technical systems opens up new research directions in three important domains: 1) areas of intervention; 2) transition justice; 3) accelerating actors.
The impending climate emergency, the Paris agreement and Sustainable Development Goals demand significant transformations in economies and societies. Science funders, innovation agencies, and scholars have explored new rationales and processes for policymaking, such as transformative innovation policy (TIP). Here, we address the question of how to...
This paper examines two bikeshare programs implemented in two Global South cities, examining the role of users in promoting sustainable transport. To explore the sustainability of smart cycling, we argue that it is important to understand the prevailing administrative and socio-institutional practices within a given context. For the effective stabi...
‘Smart cities’ as sociotechnical imaginaries have been enthusiastically embraced by urban planners and policymakers around the world. In 2014, the government of India launched its Smart Cities Mission ostensibly to create socially inclusive and sustainable cities. Aspiring to make their cities smart, and following guidelines provided by the nationa...
Sharing experiences of a PhD - advocating for training and socialisation as important elements of early career academic success.
Mobility systems in megacities are facing persistent sustainability problems. A focus on regime shift in transitions literature in addressing these problems reflects a western bias as it relies on niches as sources of change. In megacities like in Kolkata, India, public transportation is dominant, and actors are more concerned to improve and upgrad...
Cycling is a key mobility option for low income citizens in India. Currently the cycling regime in Indian megacities are undergoing substantial changes, owing to emergence of new smart ‘niches’ on one hand and destabilisation of the existing cycling practice on the other. These changes are driven by (often contradicting) visions of sustainable mobi...
It is generally accepted that the concept of sustainability is not straightforward, but is subject to on-going ambiguities, uncertainties and contestations. Yet literature on sustainability transitions has so far only engaged in limited ways with the resulting tough questions around what sustainability means, to whom and in which contexts. This pap...
Asia’s rapidly growing cities are gearing up to meet increasing mobility needs while simultaneously striving to achieve sustainability goals. A number of new innovations are being introduced in the form of experiments aiming to change the systems and rule-sets that currently dominate the provision of mobility services in Asian cities. This chapter...
