My latest book:

Franz Lehner. Deliberative Governance for Sustainable Development:  An Innovative Solution for Environment, Economy and Society. London-New York: Routledge, 2022


Currently, I am working on a new book  provisionally entitled "Social Science and the Evolution of Society." Against the backdrop of the huge changes facing Western societies and the world at large, the book brings together and systematizes the theoretical knowledge of social science, especially economics and sociology, on social change.


I am also working on the development of the Ruhr area, as I have been for many years.
