From a global financial crisis that has not lead to a fundamental change in institutions, to a global refugee crisis that questions our ideas of governance, set against a background of global climate crisis with no intergovernmental consensus on solutions... we are forced to ask ourselves, how do we think about the future, our futures? This richly theoretical and empirically informed text explores trends, alternative visions, and new directions for sociological research. A diverse collection of theoretical approaches are provided by a range of regional experts, including chapters on Feminist and Indigenous Perspectives in Latin America, an African-centred approach to Knowledge Production, and Imagining Muslim Democracy, all of which reflect the complexity of challenges and the multiplicity of future projects on a shared planet.
