In this talk I begin with a summary of my collaborative research on the effects of economic development and income inequality on carbon emissions, and how these relationships change through time. Next, I provide an introduction to the emerging area of sustainability research on the carbon intensity of human well-being, where we assess the extent to which development and inequality partially shape such socioenvironmental relationships. I provide examples of these two areas of research that focus on global samples of nations as well as studies that focus explicitly on nations in Central and Eastern Europe. I conclude by describing recent preliminary research where we investigate how forms of regional governance and macroeconomic integration influence the emissions of fossil-fuel power plants in nations throughout Central and Eastern Europe.
