Ekaterina Chertkovskaya is a researcher based at Lund University (Sweden), working on degrowth and critical organisation studies.
Her work addresses the crises created by capitalism, neoliberalism and the pursuit of economic growth, and explores informed paths for socio-ecological transformation. She has been writing on the problems with work/employability, corporate violence and the plastic crisis, on the one hand, and focusing on degrowth as a vision for transformation, its political economy, and alternative models of work and organising, on the other.
Together with Alexander Paulsson and Stefania Barca, Ekaterina co-edited Towards a Political Economy of Degrowth (Rowman & Littlefield, 2019). With scholars and activists from DegrowthVienna, she is currently working on a book on degrowth and strategies.
Ekaterina is also a member of the editorial collective of ephemera: theory & politics in organization, an independent, open access journal.
