This volume presents a flexible conceptual framework for comprehending institutional dimensions of sustainability, emphasising the complexity of instututional systems, and highlighting the interdependence between policy learning and institutional change. This framework is applied and developed through the analysis of five significant arenas of institutional and policy change: environmental policy in the EU; New Zealand's Councils for Sustainable Development Act; and transformative property rights instruments. From these explorations, key principles for insitutional change are identified, including the institutional change; reiteration and learning; integration in policy and practice; subsidarity; and legal change.
