Version 3.2

On International solidarity and economic decolonization

Strengthening alliances between the degrowth and the global health community

Within the global health field, progress is being made to adopt a justice and sustainability-centred approach to global health issues through the advancement of what has been named a Planetary Health agenda. Meanwhile, an increasing number of global health scholars argue for a decolonization of the field. Yet, amongst these collective efforts to ‘transform’ global health thinking, a thorough historic and political economic analysis is often missing, and growthism continues to prevail. Truly committing to a decolonial eco-just global health agenda requires addressing the continuation of colonial arrangements within our global economic structure, removing structural and institutional growth dependencies in our world economy and ushering in post-growth economic strategies instead.
