Enacting discontinuity-what's useful and what's cumbersome

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, I will review various empirical and theoretical sets of conditions and strategies under which active and purposeful discontinuity appears accomplishable. More abrupt and more incremental processes of discontinuation will be distinguished, as well as how they are linked to different governance streams (problematization, policy-­‐making, politics) and to the multi-­‐level dynamics of socio-­‐technical regimes. The paper draws on various examples, from nuclear to incandescent light bulb phase-­‐outs, from efforts to ban mercury to internal combustion engines in cars.
