Our Goal


We explore how people are interwoven with their materialised environment through various practices and how social institutions emerge and change during these processes. The main aims of ReForm are:

  1. stimulate a multidisciplinary theoretical debate,
  2. to broaden the understanding of single case studies through a multi-perspective approach, and
  3. develop medium-range theories of resources and socio-ecological transformations and apply them to different empirical datasets using proven methods such as agent-based modelling.
