More Information
This book expertly analyses European political entrepreneurship in relation to the EU’s approach towards the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development strategy. It explores the role of European political entrepreneurs in shaping, influencing and realising sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Leading contributors consider political entrepreneurship at an international level, explaining how European political entrepreneurs act and interact in order to promote their policies at various levels of governance. Focusing on how EU politicians, public servants and bureaucrats create new and innovative institutional conditions, the contributors reveal how the UN SDGs are implemented in Europe. Chapters examine several EU actors in the context of numerous development goals to assess how political entrepreneurship challenges traditional EU institutions and promotes visionary activity to achieve the goals of Agenda 2030.

Providing a unique contribution to the growing pool of research on entrepreneurial activity in the public sector, this book will prove to be a valuable resource for scholars working at the intersection between entrepreneurship, policy-making and European politics. It will also be beneficial for students and practitioners who are interested in global issues and sustainable development.
Critical Acclaim
‘This volume provides a broad and up to date account of European Union governance of sustainable development. In doing so it brings in political entrepreneurship as an important perspective on understanding how actors in the European Union interpret and implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It is a timely and important contribution that will be of interest to all students of sustainable development.’
– Staffan Andersson, Linnaeus University, Sweden
