Malmö’s path towards a sustainable future: Health, welfare and justice

Bob Jessop


This is a very interesting and inspiring document tor those readers, like me, who live outside Sweden. The report is a major achievement. The benefits of multi-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary cooperation are evident. Above all, arguments from the social and natural sciences are interwoven to produce a well-presented and accessible text that makes a connected series of recommendations and translates them into action points that can be used to monitor progress in future. The most impressive feature is the persistent and multidimensional concern with human flourishing and equity and, in this context, the critique, sometimes explicit, more often implicit, about the limits of one-sided concern with economic growth.
