Scientific paper contribution 1: Dual Development and the denial of social requirements by logics of Growth and Degrowth
Abstract: In the actual political and scientific debate on Degrowth one the Global South is one important reference: In sharp criticism towards the classical modernist paradigm of ”Development”, which (often enough implicitly) was seen as the enlargement of Nordic parameters into the South (accumulation, industrialization, urbanization, consumption and life-style), the conception of Degrowth rejects the nexus of ”Development” and ”Growth” and insists on the need for a different personal and social developmental perspective, for the Global North as well as the Global South.
