Abstract [en]

Climate change is today conceptualized as the most salient environmental problem. At the same time, climate change is an emblem of transboundary and complex matters that traditional regulation and control systems many times fall short in managing. The nation-state is no longer seen as the centre of policy making. With environmental problems understood as transboundary matters, deregulation of the market, and parallel processes of globalization and individualization new forms of governance have emerged. Parallel with international negotiations and conventions, organizations and individuals are addressed as drivers of climate change mitigation. Increased attention is paid to greenhouse gas emissions from everyday life activities, such as transports, recreational activities and what we eat and wear. In this course, actors increasingly are addressed by regulatory mechanisms that appeal to the free will, implying an individualization of responsibility. We can see various ways of discursive steering, aiming at changing both peoples’ actions and their way of thinking. We can also see a number of individual responses to this kind of discursive steering, conscientiously and freely trying to make changes in everyday life. The aim of this paper is to contextualize and critically discuss the concept of individualized environmental responsibility. The paper concludes by discussing the advantage of juxtaposing approaches that attend to the rationalities and techniques of government and studies of how people make sense of and respond to a prescribed identities, since such juxtaposition highlight the fact that forms of resistance are intertwined with the strategies, techniques and power relationships they oppose.
