I am an assistant professor in environmental geography and development studies at the Department of Geography, Planning and International Development Studies, Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences, University of Amsterdam (UvA). I am also teaching at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies, at the UvA Faculty of Science.

My research and teaching  focus on forging links across disciplinary divides—mostly in the areas of political ecology, inclusive development, post-development, degrowth and systems science.

I have also been involved in establishing the Dutch degrowth plaform Ontgroei and leading an action research and social justice programme with practitioners in Bangladesh.

Waarom we niet het kapitalisme, maar ‘degrowth’ moeten verinnerlijken - MaatschapWij @NadineMaarhuis

I recently watched #BreakingBoundaries on @Netflix and have rather mixed views about it. Here is a short🧵on what I perceived were some of its pros and cons…

New leaked tax data:

The “richest 25 Americans pay less in tax … than most mainstream US workers. … Ultra-wealthy people can sidestep the system in an entirely legal way."

This is sickening. We need massive tax reforms now (also outside US!).

“We now have the capacity to act as Earth’s conscience, its brain.” Attenborough’s scientism makes me feel very uncomfortable... #breakingboundaries

Can we all have a good life and stop pursuing economic growth at the same time? You can now watch the video of last week's degrowth event, hosted by our friends at @ontgroei_nl:

L'argent est un bon serviteur et un mauvais maître, nous rappelle Willem Hoogendijk, un des pionniers de la #decroissance ici aux Pays-Bas
