    Mental Models of Sustainability: The Degrowth Doughnut Model

    Domazet, M., Rilović, A., Ančić, B., Andersen, B., Richardson, L., Brajdić Vuković, M., Pungas, L. and T. Medak. 2020. Mental Models of Sustainability: The Degrowth Doughnut Model. Encyclopedia of the World’s Biomes, 276-286 pp.

    The doughnut model provides a base for guiding strategies for urgent and radical socio-metabolic transformation that human communities must put into practice to achieve global just sustainability. It visually quantifies existing social reproduction deviations in the chosen units (nations, regions) from the abstract safe and just operating space. This space is defined by boundaries and thresholds of biophysical, socioeconomic, and cultural downscaled and normalized indicator values; based on a principle-theory paradigm of realistically sustainable flourishing of people and planet.

    Abhängigkeit im 21. Jahrhundert. Globale Stoffströme und internationale Arbeitsteilung.

    Graf, Jakob; Landherr, Anna; Puder, Janina; Rackwitz, Hans; Reitz, Tilman; Sey, Benjamin; Sittel, Johanna; Tittor, Anne. 2020. Abhängigkeit im 21. Jahrhundert. Globale Stoffströme und internationale Arbeitsteilung. In: PROKLA. Zeitschrift für kritische Sozialwissenschaft 198, pp. 11-32.

    Abhängigkeiten im globalen Kapitalismus stellen eine historische Kontinuität dar. Wie diese sich seit dem Ende der formalen Kolonialherrschaft in ökonomischer und politischer Hinsicht fortsetzen, hat Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts zunächst vor allem der lateinamerikanische Dependenzansatz prominent diskutiert. Der vorliegende Beitrag argumentiert, dass politische und ökonomische Abhängigkeiten trotz Verschiebungen gegenüber der Ausgangslage der dependenztheoretischen Diskussionen der 1970er Jahre weithin fortbestehen und sich nicht allein über die Betrachtung ökonomischer Kennziffern beschreiben lassen. Gerade auch im Hinblick auf zwei Leerstellen des Dependenzansatzes, der Aneignung von un(ter-) bezahlter Sorge- und Subsistenzarbeit sowie am kostenlosen Zugriff auf Natur, zeigen sich Machtbeziehungen und Abhängigkeitsverhältnisse, auf denen die kapitalistische Weltwirtschaft weiterhin beruht.
