New Economic Thought, Policies and Practices for Green-Left Alliances


Discussion framework
 
Green Academy winter seminar aims to depart from analysis of current economic situation in Europe and present a landscape of current theoretical, political and practical alternatives which are being proposed, designed or developed by variety of European left and green actors.
 
With new era of austerity in Europe, prescribed role of states to negotiate between citizens and capital accumulation has been significantly weakened thus leading to suspension of democracy and erosion of trust which was basis for social contracts across Europe. Furthermore, it became evident that tensions between economy and society have been increased and that it is more and more difficult to manage them within national frameworks thus increasing tensions between the states themselves and leading to re-nationalisation of politics and aggressive competition. At the same time, whilst climate instability is increasing, in the peripheral economies traditional and novel extractivist practices and externalization of environmental costs are enhancing the rift between societies and environments that support them. Moreover, adverse transformation of economy that complies blindly with financial interests and it alienates it from the people and labour, leads to a new sort of economic constitutionalism, which has become a significant concern for a number of actors.
 
However, there are emerging initiatives at many levels across Europe that aim to introduce redistribution or reduce raging inequalities, as well as redress the seemingly unavoidable opposition between dignified life and environmental sustainability. From Universal Basic Income to immediate anti-austerity measures, from degrowth to green economy, from commoning to democratization of public services, there are different but not always connected and mutually supported proposals emerging across Europe. They aim to prevent the radical neoliberalisation of Europe that is emerging from new institutional arrangements like TTIP or TISA.
 
Recognising that both Nature and Labour are challenged by identical systemic forces that led us to the present deep multiple crisis we are also aware that the political framing of these answers requires at least some of mutual support and common understanding between the Greens and the Left.
 
Our overall exercise aims to identify the forces of gravitational pull that different alternative policies and proposals that currently co-exist on green-left spectrum possess, and to detect both interpretative and political convergences that can lead to a denser and more impactful cooperation among the respective actors, so as to enhance the achievability of their projects.
 
In our discussions, we would like to find out which qualities new economy needs to contain in order to secure dignity and restore ecological balance ¬while being emancipative from current system?
 
  • What are the main and original ingredients of the economic policy of new left? Which ideas, narratives and solutions can deliver success and reduce pressure on people and nature?

  • Which theoretical concepts can prove efficient in designing new economic policy?

  • What kind of political economy within the current restrictions can be emancipative ? How it can ensure reproduction of life?

  • How economy can become more generative rather than accumulative/exctractive?

  • How does it increase chances and conditions for reproduction of life?

  • How it relates to organisation of labour within time (working hours)?

  • How to prevent further devastating impacts of expropriation of the commons and bring commons back to the citizens?

  • How actors belonging to new left and green spectrum see future of economic relationships in Europe within the current constraints imposed by austerity and financialisation?
 
Our main objective is to outline most original and achievable ideas of the new economic thought and to bring them in dialogue or debate with similar or complementary ideas that exist at European and local level.
 
At the seminar we aim to host around 50 scholars, activists and researchers from the Balkans but also from different European countries to discuss about the different ideas that exist at the moment in green/left circles.

  • 5. srpnja 2020. Proučavanje Marxa nije za elitiste "Čitanje Marxove teorije nije samo za samodopadne naučenjake – samo pitajte milijune radnica i radnika čije su ideje o ulozi koju bi mogli imati u promjeni svijeta bile transformirane kako promišljanjem, tako i praksom."
  • 5. srpnja 2020. Želite se boriti protiv siromaštva? Dajte siromašnima novac. "Nedavno objavljena istraživanja potvrđuju da je stopa siromaštva pala u travnju i svibnju, zahvaljujući federalnoj pomoći uslijed pandemije korona virusa. Pomislili biste da će to uvjeriti tvorce politika da nastave s takvom pomoći, ali to se ne događa – naime, pristup SAD-a socijalnoj skrbi krivo je usmjeren i okrutan."
  • 5. srpnja 2020. Kratka povijest Jordana Petersona "Poruka Jordana Petersona je jednostavna: „zlo“ je inherentno ljudskoj vrsti, a dominacija određenih ljudi nad drugima biološki je utemeljena."
  • 28. lipnja 2020. Izbori 2020: Budućnost parlamentarne političke diskusije U prvom su planu nadolazećih parlamentarnih izbora u Hrvatskoj dvije najveće stranke, obje izašle iz procesa unutarnje konsolidacije oko figura svojih lidera. Ekstremna desnica, koju je HDZ proteklih godina odbacio, prijeti ostvariti povijesno dobar rezultat i trajno poremetiti dugogodišnju političku ravnotežu. Međutim, u Sabor bi mogla ući i lijevo-zelena koalicija te konačno uvesti nove političke modele i koncepte u hrvatski parlamentarizam.
  • 28. lipnja 2020. Nemiri Stonewalla "Danas je prvi dan Mjeseca ponosa, proslave Stonewallskih nemira iz 1969. godine. Ustanci trenutno izbijaju diljem zemlje. Današnji bogati bijeli gej muškarci možda se protive „nasilju“, ali povijest LBGTQ+ pokreta pokazuje da se neredi ugnjetavanih ljudi tiču oslobođenja."
  • 21. lipnja 2020. Martin Luther King znao je da nema ničega mirnog u nenasilju ako se provodi kako spada Daleko od srednjostrujaške aklamacije nenasilnog djelovanja svedenog na moralni nagovor, širenje utjecaja u postojećim institucijama i pristojne, pacifizirane prosvjede, Kingov zagovor nenasilja kao metode gnjevnog, ali staloženog suprotstavljanja sistemskom nasilju kroz kolektivnu direktnu akciju koja remeti normalno funkcioniranje društva, taktičke je prirode. Radikalna rekonstrukcija američkog društva na kakvoj je radio iziskivala je da se gnjev transformira u moć putem angažmana duljeg trajanja, umjesto da se opravdano, ali reaktivno troši u neredima.
  • 21. lipnja 2020. Voziti automobil u doba nejednakosti "Kada časopis poznatiji po recenzijama stranih superautomobila i domaćih nabrijanih vozila te uredničkoj politici koja izaziva kontroverze jedino kada napada terence (u prilog monovolumenima i automobilima) istakne priču o Oliveru, obiteljskom automobilu Jasona M. Vaughna marke Subaru, koji je prešao 418 000 kilometara, u članku pod naslovom “The Fear of Failure” („Strah od neuspjeha“), to je svakako znak da živimo u vremenima opscene nejednakosti."
  • 21. lipnja 2020. Prava definicija „privatnog vlasništva“ "Elite se pribojavaju uništenja vlastite imovine, ali još više strahuju od uništenja društvenih odnosa koji čine privatno vlasništvo mogućim. Dakle, strepe od svijeta bez policije."
  • 14. lipnja 2020. Neka vas „preispisivanje povijesti“ ne zabrinjava: upravo je to historičarski posao Rušenje spomenika britanskom robovlasniku Edwardu Colstonu u bristolsku luku dočekano je, između ostalog, reakcijama koje hine zabrinutost za historiografiju. Međutim, svako je postavljanje spomenika i politički čin, a kada je omjer komemoracije eksponenata trgovine robljem i imperijalizma naspram njihovih žrtava toliko jednostran, upravo se obaranje ovakvog spomenika ispostavlja kao predugo odgađani prilog historijskoj reevaluaciji.
