Chapter Highlights

- Over the last decade, Earth System Governance (ESG)—Agency scholars have increased their use of social and system dynamic theories, participatory and actorness approaches in agency theories, and justice approaches within critical theories.


- Qualitative and multiple qualitative methods are the most widely used approaches in research on agency in earth system governance, with very slowly growing methodological pluralism.


- In the future, scholars in this field may benefit from the integration of crossdisciplinary and increasingly complex methods in an effort to foster linking of environmental sciences more broadly into environmental governance research.
