“Elucidating the changing roles of civil society in urban sustainability transitions”

This paper written as by a gaggle of authors in 2017, asks what is the role of civil society in the future sustainability of European cities. It argues that civil society initiatives can pioneer new social relations and practices and act as a hidden innovator. This can be an integral part of urban transformations which may, in part replace the welfare and contribute to sustainability. This is relevant to Bristol but does not look directly at research in Bristol.
