De­growth is a re­jec­tion of the il­lu­sion of growth and a call to re­politi­cise the pub­lic de­bate colonised by the id­iom of economism. It is a project ad­vo­cat­ing the demo­crat­i­cally-led shrink­ing of pro­duc­tion and con­sump­tion with the aim of achiev­ing so­cial jus­tice and eco­log­i­cal sus­tain­abil­ity.

This overview of de­growth of­fers a com­pre­hen­sive cov­er­age of the main top­ics and ma­jor chal­lenges of de­growth in a suc­cinct, sim­ple and ac­ces­si­ble man­ner. In ad­di­tion, it of­fers a set of key­words use­ful for in­ter­ven­ing in cur­rent po­lit­i­cal de­bates and for bring­ing about con­crete de­growthin­spired pro­pos­als at dif­fer­ent lev­els – lo­cal, na­tional and global.

The re­sult is the most com­pre­hen­sive cov­er­age of the topic of de­growth in English and serves as the de­fin­i­tive in­ter­na­tional ref­er­ence.
