Rio+20: the discursive change of the EU from a (non-existing) “sustainable development” towards “green economy”

Author: Gustavo Hernandez

In the run-up to the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development to be held in June 2012 (the Summit of the Earth or Rio+20), different international agendas are already put at stake. It is not a minor concern, if we consider a global conjuncture marked by, among others, a financial crisis. As has already been pointed out by the finance guru, George Soros, in a recent article, comparing the current crisis with the former collapse of existing socialisms, “something similar to the fall of the Soviet bloc is happening in the West…You have a financial crisis wherein the market has collapsed, but it has been kept alive artificially thanks to the authorities. People do not realize that the system has actually collapsed”.
