Economics and the environment since the 1950s – History, methodology and philosophy International workshop – 2019, March

Organized by the journal Cahiers d’économie politique / Papers in political economy And the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne

Call for papers
Environmental concerns emerged in economics during the 1950s. Some economists had focused on these issues before, but it is not until then that the environment really became an autonomous subject of economic study. During this period of strong demographic and economic growth in industrialized countries, this progressive recognition of environmental issues by economists was caused by natural resources depletion, ecosystems degradation, and pollution or harmful effects such as the first smog in London and Los Angeles or the chemical contamination of the Minamata Bay. » Read the full article

Call for Papers: “The Institutionalisation of Degrowth & Post-growth: the European level” – Brussels, September 17th, 2018

Université Libre de Bruxelles and Research&Degrowth are cordially inviting you to a seminar day.

Context :
A major degrowth & post-growth conference (http://www.postgrowth2018.eu) convened by European-level stakeholders (Members of the European Parliament from different political groups, academics, NGOs and unions) will take place in the premises of the European Parliament on September 18 and 19 (2018). At the heart of the European Union decision-making, the 2018 conference will offer a unique opportunity for the EU civil society and the degrowth and post-growth communities to exchange their views with those of EU officials and staff who define the core of the European economy. The aim of these 2 days – about one year before the next European elections and the nomination of a new Commission – will be to support a wide cultural contagion effect within the EU-institutions by which the thinking of policy makers could tilt towards genuine sustainability. These 2 days at the EU-Parliament will be preceded by a preparatory and learning seminar at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. » Read the full article
