The workshop will strengthen the network of researchers using the archetypes approach in sustainability research. Specifically, it will provide a unique opportunity to:
We invite the following kind
This year, we particularly invite contributions related to conflicts and sustainability, e.g., in relation to social welfare, justice, commons and institutions, populism and social cohesion, and resource-use (land/water conflicts, climate change, biodiversity).
We also invite contributions related to methods and to themes from previous workshops, including dynamic archetype analysis, transferability and scaling of solutions, the science-policy-society interface, transdisciplinary research, and scenario archetypes.
The workshop will also include plenaries, social events, further room for collaboration, and paper feedback sessions. Welcome and orientation material for new members of the network will be offered.
Proposals for full paper presentations, pitches, or themed break-out sessions need to be submitted with an abstract (about 400 words). Full papers require an extended abstract (statements on: topic, methods, results, relevance for archetype analysis). Selection is made through peer-review by the scientific program committee. Authors of accepted presentations are invited but not obliged to share full or draft papers.
30th of January: Submissions of abstracts on https://
10th of March: Feedback on accepted papers and break-out sessions
2nd of May: Registration on https://
The workshop will bring together 30-40 researchers from different fields of sustainability research (including but not restricted to land-use science, institutional analysis, scenario analysis, justice studies, and climate change). Previous participants have published on topics like water use, biodiversity scenarios, climate change adaptation, local environmental policies (see, e.g. Ecology & Society Special Issue, Environmental Research Letters Focus Issue ). It is open to all researchers with experience and/or interest in the archetypes approach (established members of the network as well as researchers wishing to join the workshop series for the first time). We are happy to welcome participants from all continents.
Costs of the workshop: Participation in the workshop is free of charge. If you intend to participate in person, you are required to cover travel and accommodation costs. We are currently trying to raise funds to support travel of PhD students and non-Europeans.
