Can Europe produce a sustainable future? What difficulties does globalization throw in the way of states that aim to create a sustainable economy? Europe, Globalization and Sustainable Development explores the many facets of these issues in the light of the most recent developments in Europe. The two focal points of the studies are politics and policy. The contributions to the current European experience made by ecofeminism, the anti-globalization movement and the European environmental movement are examined, as are matters such education for environmentally-informed citizenship, the possibilities for creating an environmentally-friendly form of industry and the interaction between Europe and the rest of the world in international policy-making forums such as the Johannesburg Earth Summit. This edited volume considers the ways in which European states and the European Union can and should organize themselves economically and socially in order to address the challenges of sustainable development. It will interest students and researchers of environmental policy and European politics. Susan Baker is Reader in the School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University and in 2003 was awarded a Swedish Royal Appointment as King Carl XVI Gustaf's Professor in Environmental Sciences.
