Saki Bailey is a Doctoral Candidate at the Department of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and a member of the Social Sustainability Research Group. Her dissertation, "The Common Good in Common Goods" studies commons governance of key resources as a strategic point of transformation of capitalism. While the debates on Commons and the debates around Degrowth are distinct from one another, there are many overlapping features: their commitment to anti-capitalist strategies, sustainable use of ecological resources, and attention to human processes of production and consumption. Saki hopes to explore the intersection of these in her presentation
