Performing Scales through Environmental Markets
Over the last forty years we have witnessed a worldwide proliferation of environmental markets as “tools” for governance. From an STS perspective, the design and implementation of such markets have been analyzed as instances of economic performativity (Callon, MacKenzie, Holm) and as innovation processes in governance (Voß). While such studies have yielded many great insights, it was argued that they do not well explain problems of new structurations, dependencies and power relations emerging as a result of the performation or innovation of markets (e.g. Miller). We propose to contribute to thinking about such issues with the concept of scale while investigating the performative effects of environmental markets. We see several potential contributions of the study of scale-making processes for a better understanding of broader implications of environmental markets:

The (re)enactment of environmental markets involves multiple and interacting scales such as jurisdictional scales (e.g. EU<->Member states), geo-political scales (e.g. global North<-> global South ), measurement scales (e.g. emission of point sources <-> emission of countries) or conceptual scales (e.g. policy design as abstract planning <-> as situated practice); scales create dependencies and hierarchies and can therefore serve as devices for the stabilization or destabilization of power structures (e.g. between the global North and the global South, or between or between economists and policy makers); scales are among the most contested issues in the design and implementation of environmental markets (e.g. asking on what scales markets are supposedly achieving effects, which scales they bring into existence, such as the extension of capitalist scales of measuring utility); scales, while they can be the objective of deliberate design, are also both the result and the cause of displacement (e.g. biodiversity measurement scales as having tremendous effects on communities’ right to organise themselves).

With a specific focus on scale-making processes this panel thus seeks to contribute to the task of analyzing environmental markets from an STS perspective. We invite papers that critically examine aspects of scale-making processes in the innovation and performation of environmental markets. The panel is open to both theoretical and methodological approaches as well as to various empirical cases on scale-making related to environmental markets.
