Circular Economy for Social Transformation: Multiple Paths to Achieve Circularity


The e-book “Circular Economy for Social Transformation: multiple paths to achieve circularity” represents the third outcome of WP1 (Beyond the current CE models and practice) of the JUST2CE project. WP1 aims to provide a rigorous and comprehensive overview and analysis of the current state-of-the-art in the Circular Economy (CE) field, highlighting uneven developments, differences in theorisations, understandings and implementations between different geographical, ideological and political-economic contexts. Moreover, the eBook encompasses results and reflection elaborated in WP2, 3, 4 and 5.
This eBook aspires to be a map of ‘CE plurality’ by means of an overview of the current applications of CE in the international context with a particular focus on combining CE with theories of global environmental justice, social justice, gendered innovation and labour. The chapters of this book highlight some crucial elements to understand the key characteristics of the current complex process of initiating a transition towards the CE, the tools and frameworks for measuring CE and a roadmap to a just CE across its main concepts, geographical areas and scenarios. This helps us better analyse and understand what circular futures we can expect and what circular futures we should strive for.
