  5. 20. From the Paris Conference to the Paris of the Yellow Vests: a laboratory for characterizing transition profiles and cultural repertoires to apprehend social and perceptive conflicts of sustainability

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen

    Author : Mathilde Eugénie Aleth Françoise Martin; [2019]
    Keywords : Sustainability Transitions; social acceptability; Yellow Vests; framing struggles; Social Sciences;
