Abstract

In the chapter “Why power is not a peripheral concern: Exploring the relationship between inequality and sustainability” Danijela Dolenec, Mladen Domazet and Branko Ančić investigate the correlations between levels of inequality within the said European countries and personal concern, activation and sacrifice commitments within their populations. They expand the models and instruments from the article "Prosperity and environmental sacrifice in Europe: Importance of income for sustainability-orientation" with measures of social inequality and international indicators of material deprivation. Whilst acknowledging the strong influence of income in support for environmental conservation among general population, this chapter exposes the fallacy behind the expectation that only affluent European societies hold value orientations important for the switch to sustainability.
