|Resource title||Escaping from the economy: The politics of degrowth|
|Publication/ source||International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy, vol.28 no.11/12 pp.528-545|
|Summary text/ abstract||Whilst there is a growing recognition of environmental degradation, the policies of sustainable development or ecological modernisation offered by national governments and international institutions seem to do little more than "sustain the unsustainable". By promising to reconcile growth with the environment, they fail to question the economic principle of endless growth that has caused environmental destruction in the first place. In this context, alternatives based on critiques of growth may offer more promising grounds. The aim of this paper is to explore how the degrowth movement that emerged in France over the last decade resonates with, and can contribute to, green politics.|
