    Paola Minoia, Jenni Mölkänen

    Chapter from the book: Krieg C. & Toivanen R. 2021. Situating Sustainability: A Handbook of Contexts and Concepts.


    This chapter rethinks scales as an opportunity for sustainability studies to engage with decolonial strategies that stand against the confinement of Southern studies as local knowledge, compared to the Western knowledge that is seen as universal. Examples of plurinational ‘scale-jumping’ in Ecuador and kinship networks in Northeast Madagascar redefine the ordering of scales to redress complicated histories of ecological and social colonization.
