Professor of Environmental Science and Policy
During the past several years Brown has concentrated on research in three areas. The first area concerns the role of small scale experiments as the means for affecting a transition to more sustainable large scale socio-technical systems.
The second research area concerns the process of institutionalization of voluntary reporting on environmental and social performance as an instrument for holding corporations accountable to the society.
The third research area concerns sustainable consumption. The current international financial collapse and the global climate crisis both persuasively demonstrate that the prevailing neoliberal model of economic growth is highly unsustainable.
