Closing the loop or squaring the circle? – A Critical Dialogue on Circular Economy with Dr Kersty Hobson (Cardiff University).
In this seminar, Kersty Hobson, from Cardiff University, hosted a critical dialogue session, especially aimed at Early Stage Researchers, discussing her recent papers.
After a brief intro from Dr Hobson, we were able to engage with her in a Q&A session.
In her recent work, Dr Hobson has emphasised that Circular Economy (CE) is now a key governance framework that aims to reconfigure how value is extracted from resources; however, despite its widespread uptake, CE commentary to date tends towards descriptive and/or celebratory. In response, in her recent papers, Kersty has posed several key research questions, to encourage more critical research on and around issues of CE.
