Adrian E. Beling is a Research Fellow and lecturer with the Global Studies Programme at FLACSO Argentina (Latin-American Faculty of Social Sciences) and the Humboldt University of Berlin, and Academic Director of a pioneering postgraduate program in Integral Ecology, jointly awarded by 37 member-universities of the University Network for the Care of the Common Home (RUC). Adrian holds a PhD in Sociology from the Humboldt University of Berlin and from the Alberto Hurtado University, in Chile, as well as an M.A. in Global Studies. Trained in Economics, Business Administration and Social Sciences in Argentina (National University of Cuyo and FLACSO), Germany (University of Freiburg), and India (Jawaharlal Nehru University), he is a lecturer and public speaker in diverse academic and non-academic contexts in different countries. In 2014 he co-founded the academic blog and journal Alternautas, devoted to making Latin-American socio-environmental thinking available to a non-Spanish speaking audience. Adrian’s theoretical and empirical work explores both the conditions for a successful sustainability transition (“transition governance”) and how governance itself is transformed as a result of sustainability imperatives (“governance in transition”). He has published extensively on the Latin-American Buen vivir experiment. Adrian’s latest work focuses on the role of organized religion as a sustainability governance agent, and on the interface of politics and culture in sustainability governance theory.
