Non-academic stakeholders from farmers to consumers may offer edifying definitions of the ‘research problem’ or highlight complexities or contingencies in the system that researchers have overlooked. To posit interdisciplinarity as including partners outside formal academic disciplines throws down the gauntlet to those who see research as the preserve of the academy. It may be jarring, given academic and disciplinary training, and risky, given the structure of rewards and incentives in the academy.

Whose values matter? Ultimately, the issue of trade-offs leads directly to one of the most significant tensions in sustainability – the crucial importance of power and politics. For example, decisions about sustainability trade-offs could end up being handled by ‘transition managers’ whose procedures and politics do not incorporate the range of divergent social interests. If that were to happen, sustainability would become a largely top-down, mechanistic and technical-administrative project. However, genuine democratic process and unfamiliar models of more reflexive governance could well be slower and messier for designing, negotiating and working for sustainability, precisely when the problems we face seem more urgent than ever.
