In the continuity of their work towards the European Students Assembly, on February 17th, Panel 5 students have met a second expert on the topic “Sustainable development or degrowth – What economic model can the EU adopt for tomorrow’s world and how can it be durably settled?”
Timothée Parrique holds a PhD in economics from the Centre d’Études et de Recherches sur le Développement (University of Clermont Auvergne) and the Stockholm Resilience Centre (Stockholm University). Titled “The political economy of degrowth” (2019), his dissertation explores the economic implications of the ideas of degrowth. Tim is also the lead author of “Decoupling debunked – Evidence and arguments against green growth” (2019), a report published by the European Environmental Bureau (EEB).
During the meeting, students had the opportunity to discuss the economic model of degrowth and how it can be durably implemented in EU.
