Sustainable Development and Politics: Economic and Social Dimensions

In an era in which political and economic interdependence among nations is increasing, the development of less industrialized countries is becoming more important. It is not only important to look at the economic and social gaps between nations but at ways in which to decrease that gap. I will be looking at the economic and social dimensions of sustainable development and how that ties into politics and policies. I will be analyzing the different factors commonly linked to development, possible development plans and implementation processes. Briefly mentioning the historical aspect of the growing gap between nations I will be looking at ways in which sustainable development has changed. More importantly I am exploring ways in which sustainable development needs to be approached today.
