New book on the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals

Magdalena Bexell and Kristina Jönsson have published the book The Politics of the Sustainable Development Goals. Legitimacy, Responsibility, and Accountability.

The book contributes new knowledge on processes related to the 2030 Agenda at the nexus of global and national political levels. It focuses on three countries at different levels of socio-economic development and democratisation: Ghana, Tanzania, and Sweden. The analysis revolves around three concepts that call attention to the role of political institutions and politics in sustainable development goal-setting: legitimacy, responsibility, and accountability. 

More information about the book is available on Taylor & Francis Group’s website
