Our new book 🚀🐌✊🏾 #Degrowth in Movement(s): Exploring pathways for transformtion

A dictionary of social movements and alternatives for a future beyond economic growth, capitalism, and domination. 📘Published @Zer0Books & with CC licence. Whats it about, whos in it? 👉🏽THREAD 1/
There have been many books on the concepts of alternative economies, on the #GreenNewDeal, a #wellbeing economy, #postcapitalism or #degrowth. But what about the practices?

How can the transformation of society be conceptualized? And how can we built alliances for this? 2/
Degrowth is not just a new term for an ongoing discussion on alternatives or a thriving academic research paradigm.

Its also an emerging social movement that overlaps considerably with other social movements – from #BasicIncome to #commons #unions #cooperatives #Feminism /3

🗣️Our new book is out today: “#CasaPound Italia: contemporary #Extreme #Right #Politics” co-written by @CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE Matteo Albanese, Giorgia Bulli and myself @CrexUiO, for @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction (thread 1/15)
shorturl.at/nSW19
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction The volume presents a theory of contemporary right-wing #extremism that helps understand how a fringe group like CPI has been successful in placing its ideas in public debates in #Italy. shorturl.at/nSW19 (2/15)
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction We argue that this type of success has to do with #hybridization, which we define as the blurring of five main aspects of ‘#extreme right politics’: #ideology, internal structure, #activism, #mobilization and #communication.

My new book #TheGoodDrone is forthcoming @MITPress. We’re inviting anyone to comment before it goes to press (thx @PubPub). Let’s democratize the review process on #movements #humanrights #technology! thegooddrone.pubpub.org // Here’s the TL;DR for the book, in a thread [1/7]
Chapter 1: Beyond Social Media // I wrote #TheGoodDrone out of fascination & frustration. Fascination with a range of new technologies like drones & satellites, & frustration with how much of their potential was overlooked by folks studying politics [2/7] thegooddrone.pubpub.org/pub/jwlw5r98
Chapter 2: Democratizing Surveillance // Social media's not the only technology that matters for politics! Drones, satellites, kites, and balloons democratize data gathering and even surveillance [3/7] thegooddrone.pubpub.org/pub/6ouhcrii

This is my commentary on #twitter #movements. Before I go I want to preface this with a statement: I love humans. We're amazing creative & powerful beings. I'm fascinated by human behaviour and the hidden motivations underlying our basic need to belong. 1/
I've observed some movements taking off on Twitter. Some for #MedEd, raising awareness, knowledge sharing, inspiration and sharing failings, wounds & triumphs. Generally they support creative expression in 280 characters. Awesome! 2/
As these movements gain momentum, more people want to join in b/c #belonging. I'm seeing a disturbing trend of sharing experiences of patients/clients to promote how deep & human they are. Some are purely intended, some not. 3/
