This book focuses on understanding farming transition pathways towards sustainability, using case studies from Europe. It assesses the utility of the multi-level perspective in transition theory for addressing contemporary issues and identifies future research needs, making it an essential read for researchers of rural or agricultural change.

Arvustused

This book provides timely analysis of the multiple challenges facing European agriculture - - Exciting new insights are developed covering topics such as multifunctionaility, high nature value farming, energy production from farm crops and new forms of governance." Prof Guy Robinson, Director of the Centre for Regional Engagement, University of South Australia This book presents a rich, pan-European selection of cases assessed utilising the multi-level perspective on sustainability transitions. Based on this variety, it offers new conceptual terms for analysis, including 'niche-tandems', 'retro-innovation' and 'market hybridity'. The findings of this book thus present an important stepping stone for future research on transition strategies to make agriculture globally sustainable while preserving its local and regional richness.
