In this dissertation, we are going to focus especially on political aspects of the given concept, especially within the EU. The ways and means by which this theory can be turned into a reality is one of the themes of this dissertation. It also evaluates the ambiguities inherent in the concept and its contestable nature. In parallel with the implementation of the concept of sustainable development to the political level, the concept has also been subject to immense scholarly interest. Environmental economists have, for instance, extensively attempted to define sustainability. This analysis, at least in theory, would enable policy planners and analysts to actually determine if a given policy or initiative is supportive of sustainable development or not.
