This subfield brings together those researchers who are concerned with specific paths of development and with possible (political) strategies for realizing an integrative, sustainable growth. The expected work will contain the development of a meaningful understanding of the concept „sustainable growth“ as well as approaches on how to measure and aggregate fiscal, environmental, economic, social and public commodities. In particular the influence of sustainable growth on the employment level will be considered. Possible results are improvements concerning the assessment criteria for sustainable growth (general and for the Upper Rhine region) and new information on the populations‘ engagement.
