Academic Special Session: Degrowth, Buen Vivir, Post-Extractivism and the Imperial Mode of Living

A Dialogue between Latin America and Europe

Event large 4b8aa978adbb7c8e80151f5a83c6782a12e763374ae3a042a55e7e626a64d93b

The degrowth perspective focuses mainly on Europe and tends to overlook debates and approaches in other world regions. In this panel, we would like to outline recent debates in Latin America around concepts like Good Living (Buen Vivir) and post-extractivism. What can those experiences contribute to alternatives in Europe? How can struggles and alternatives in different parts of the world relate to each other more systematically? Is the concept “imperial mode of living” – and the opposite: a “solidary mode of living” - an adequate form to think dominant and alternative tendencies in Europe and Latin America together?
