What are the social aspects of the planetary boundaries concept?

Oxfam Senior Researcher Kate Raworth answers this question.

Raworth's research is focused on rethinking global economic growth in the face of planetary boundaries and global inequalities - including discussions of green economy, and new paradigms and measures of development.

She has previously conducted research for Oxfam GB on climate change, adaptation and human rights, agricultural trade, labour rights in global supply chains, and designing research for advocacy and campaigning.

Prior to joining Oxfam GB she spent four years as Co-author and Economist of UNDP's Human Development Report. From 1994-97 she was a Fellow of the Overseas Development Institute, working with the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Zanzibar. She holds a BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, and a masters degree in Economics for Development from the University of Oxford.
