The “Postwachstumskolleg” at the University of Jena, Germany, is organizing a workshop on Democratization and prospects of degrowth. This is how they describe their work on their HP. “Our research programme addresses the sociological diagnosis of a series of social changes and crisis phenomena which, in their entirety, question the growth-based regime of modern societies. Modern capitalist imperatives of structural dynamisation are called into question: The logics of incessant Landnahme, acceleration, and activation constitute a long-term threat to economic, ecological and social reproduction that is historically unprecedented.” For more Information please see http://www.kolleg-postwachstum.de/Homepage.html where you can also find the program of the workshop.
The 11th Pan-European Conference on International Relations will take place in Barcelona, Spain, 13th-16th September 2017.
