Handbook of Quality of Life and Sustainability, Socio-spatial and Multidisciplinary Perspectives
Lugar: Cham; Año: 2020; p. 1 - 14
This handbook compiles different studies related to quality of life and sustainability considering social, economic, environmental, cultural and political/governance aspects as well as specific socio-spatial contexts. To achieve this aim and to provide a multidisciplinary perspective, the chapters include authors from various disciplines, geographical contexts (Global South and North), and from different stages of their academic career.The varying cultural and socio-spatial contexts of the authors in the selected cases contribute to a first-hand knowledge on quality-of-life realities and sustainability. Methodologically, the authors apply a wide diversity of approaches and tools, which facilitates a unique understanding of the interlinkages between quality of life and sustainability. In this way, the handbook provides a multiplicity of disciplinary, methodological and scalar perspectives, given works at different levels such as country, urban-rural areas, and localities or neighborhoods. Some chapters include a policy dimension providing a link to policy and practice.
