Realising the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals
The project explores responsibility for the realisation of the United Nations ́ new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2015-2030. The SDGs merge environmental and developmental global agendas in an unprecedented manner. How should we locate responsibility for the future realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals?
The project combines systematic political-theoretical analysis with a comparative empirical study of the actual preconditions for the exercise of responsibility. Empirically, the project makes a comparative study of how policies on responsibility evolve in Sweden and Tanzania, two countries that represent endpoints on a continuum ranging from low income to high income countries with a high provision of official development assistance. This will enable us to provide suggestions on SDG responsibility that take into account large differences in political, institutional, economic, and historical terms between countries.
