Researcher, Lund University
Ekaterina Chertkovskaya is a researcher based at Lund University (Sweden), working on degrowth and critical organisation studies. Her work addresses the crises created by capitalism, neoliberalism and the pursuit of economic growth, and explores informed paths for socio-ecological transformation. She has been writing on the problems with work/employability, corporate violence and the plastic crisis, on the one hand, and focusing on degrowth as a vision for transformation, its political economy, and alternative models of work and organising, on the other. Ekaterina has co-edited Degrowth & Strategy (https://www.degrowthstrategy.org) (MayFly, 2022) and Towards a Political Economy of Degrowth (https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781786608956/Towards-a-Political-Economy-of-Degrowth) (Rowman & Littlefield, 2019), and co-organised the 6th International Degrowth Conference in Malmö (2018).
