QUADRANGULATIONAL COMPARISON FOR GLOCAL SUSTAINABILITY STUDIES

Main Article Content

EMMANUEL JEAN-FRANCOIS

Abstract

This paper introduces a framework for glocal sustainability studies, as well as constructs for analyses through quadrangulational comparisons. Glocal sustainability studies aim to investigate sustainability issues, challenges, policies, or practices using customized global constructs or/and trends or patterns, through quadrangulational compararisons. A quadrangulational comparison is used to analyze at least two units based on their uniqueness, sameness, uniquesameness, and sameniqueness. The quadrangulational analytical conceptual framework has the potential to offer multifaceted comparisons that the traditional framework of analyzing through similarities and differences may fail to capture.
