Economicization of environmental issues

 
Bâtiments verts

In parallel to my work on the financialization that has produced today's capitalism and continues to strongly handicap its capacity for transformation, I am concerned by environmental questions.

Despite the reformist efforts of countless actors, it seems that none of the destructive trajectories of the Anthropocene, be it global warming, loss of biodiversity or depletion of resources, have yet been reversed.

My approach to this immobility despite the restlessness takes as its starting point the socio-technical texturing of the world. The reforms at work today are based on the translation of the environmental stakes into the language of management and finance.  This kind of integration of the environmental concern into capitalism is not able to transform the economic system sufficiently.
