Abstract

This paper presents a Conceptual Framework (CF) for analysing and simulating transition dynamics (or radical systemic innovation) that is broadly consistent with both empirical evidence and current theorising about
transitions. The framework distinguishes between a dominant socio-technical regime and a number of socio-technical niches. The central feature of the
framework is to describe how niches and regime interact to produce a transition dynamic involving either a transformation or a total overthrow of the dominant
regime. We base the analysis on reviews of patterns observed in historical transitions, and provide a framework for analysing the processes involved in
producing future ‘sustainability transitions’.
