Ekaterina ChertkovskayaLecturer, MSc in Human Ecology, PhD in Critical Management Studies, MA in Industrial Relations and Personnel Management, BSc in Economics and Management
Addressing society’s ecological and social challenges in ways that both analyse pressing problems and engage in a thoughtful search for solutions is key to my academic commitment. My research lies in the areas of critical organisation studies and degrowth, with particular interests in the themes of work, consumption and sustainability. Together with Stefania Barca and Alexander Paulsson, I am co-editing Towards a political economy of degrowth (Rowman & Littlefield).
Currently I am involved in coordination and communication of a Horizon 2020 project called REINVENT, which is devoted to decarbonisation of plastics, paper, steel and meat&dairy sectors.
I am a member of the editorial collective of ephemera: theory & politics in organization – an independent open access journal.
I co-organised the 6th International Degrowth Conference for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity in Malmö, Sweden (21-25 August 2018), which attracted 800 participants from across the globe.
