By: Eleanor Finley

Teaser on entitle.org: In this second article of the series “Ecology after capitalism“, Finley revisits the concept of growth from the libertarian socialist perspective of social ecology.

The degrowth side of post-development (and vice versa)

By: Tzekou Eirini-Erifyli

Although it's been over 20 years since the first edition of "Development Dictionary" (Sachs, 1992), which marks the beginning of the debate on the end of the era of development and the transition to the age of post-development, and about 15 years since the emergence of the degrowth discourse as an activist slogan (Demaria et al, 2013), and despite the many similarities shared by the two discour...

Empowering Radical Development Alternatives

By: Ashish Kothari

Conventional power equations are being challenged in innovative ways by communities in India and elsewhere. While the power elites prod countries like India into the ever-tightening embrace of global capital, it is becoming clearer by the day that neither do the poor and marginalized benefit, nor is a globalized model of development ecologically sustainable.

The role of community enterprises in rural development

By: Melinda Mihály

Neoliberal regional development policies are not just environmentally unsustainable, but are also producing uneven regions (Harvey 2011, Smith 2008). The case of Hungary seems to confirm this. Regional disparities in Hungary has been growing in the postsocialist transition period and our accession to the EU has not improved this situation either (Tímár 2007).

Degrowth und Postwachstum – Reflexionen zu Konzeptvielfalt und Nachhaltigkeitsbezügen

By: Stephan Lorenz

Herausgeber_innen: Mit den Themen „Degrowth“ und „Postwachstum“ wurde in den vergangenen Jahren Wachstumskritik wieder auf die politische und wissenschaftliche Agenda gehoben.
