Norms, Rules and Sustainable Planning: Who Said What About Norms

Church, Jon Marco. 2014. Norms, Rules and Sustainable Planning: Who Said What About Norms. François Mancebo and Ignacy Sachs (eds.). Transitions to Sustainability, 55-62. Dordrecht: Springer

Abstract

This chapter consists of a literature review of who said what about norms at the international level. It explores what it means to look at sustainable planning as an emerging norm. Given the limited capacity of negotiated agreements to impose sustainable planning as an international norm, the author concludes that it is in the emergence of sustainability as a condition for international agreements where the greatest impact is to be expected.
