© Karin Bäckstrand and Eva Lövbrand 2015. All rights reserved. This chapter provides an interdisciplinary analysis of the governing of climate change through markets and economies. In particular, it examines-using a range of case studies and examples-where new low carbon economies are being made: the sites and spaces within which new low carbon ways of doing have been forged. The chapter draws primarily on ideas from science and technology studies (STS) and Foucauldian scholarship in order to explore these themes, concluding with a call to encourage more attention to the hidden, professional and expert locales vital to the making of low carbon economies and markets.
