The Post-Development Dictionary agenda: paths to the pluriverse

The year 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of The Development Dictionary edited by Wolfgang Sachs. This article by Demaria and Kothari lays out both a critique of the oxymoron ‘sustainable development’, and the potential and nuances of a Post-Development agenda. They present ecological swaraj from India and Degrowth from Europe as two examples of alternatives to development. This gives a hint of the forthcoming book, provisionally titled The Post-Development Dictionary, that is meant to deepen and widen a research, dialogue and action agenda for activists, policymakers and scholars on a variety of worldviews and practices relating to our collective search for an ecologically wise and socially just world.
