This podcast engages critically with the concept of development by tracing back its roots to the 18th-19th centuries' ideas of capitalism and historical progress. The analysis outlines the contradiction between the idea of development, in the sense of improvement of society through the increase of its wellbeing and equity, and the crisis-prone models which development promotes, due to its dependency on growth.

Patricia Velicu, recent graduate of international relations at CEU, discusses wthe topic with Vincent Liegey, an expert on  degrowth - an alternative social movement that advocates for the abolishment of economic growth as the ultimate social objective and argues for a different organization of life around human and social values.
