For the last few years, “Sustainable development” has emerged as a household expression, whether in everyday life or in the academy. It lies at the basis of economic policies designed in both industrialized and developing countries and outlines specific proposals and requirements intended for international institutions. Yet, the consensual and unanimous understanding on the notion of sustainable development may well result in the inclusion of its name on the long list of hollow concepts.
