Polina Ermolaeva participated in the XIX ISA World Congress of Sociology (Toronto, July 15-21, 2018)

Member of the Laboratory, Polina Ermolaeva, participated in the XIX ISA World Congress of Sociology, which was held from 15th till  21st July 2018 in Toronto, Canada. The report was related to the analysis of the post-soviet Russia’s structural socio-environmental transformations in the technological, institutional, political domains and actors’ everyday life. The study revealed that Sustainability transition in Russia is controversial, because, although the government is interested in modernization and diversification of the economy, it is highly depend on fossil fuels export. Resource-based ‘regime’ lead to unlock the niches towards Sustainability transition. However, the main challenge is in synchronizing the values and practices change of all system’s actors with emerging risks and constant dynamic of the ‘landscape’.
