Timothée Parrique is a Marie Curie PhD Fellow studying the political economy of degrowth

Parrique’s doctoral research explores multi-policy degrowth transition scenarios for the case of France from a social ecological macroeconomics perspective, and using the tools of prospective (backcasting and scenario method) and systems analysis (causal loop diagrams).The thesis considers a range of different public policies (universal basic income and services, maximum income, work time reduction, job guarantee, community currencies, sovereign money, cap and share, and diverse taxes and subsidies) as to find how these can contribute to transformations toward degrowth.

Parrique holds a Bachelor degree in economics from the University of Versailles (France) and a Masters degree in sustainability science with a focus on ecological economics from Uppsala University (Sweden). After graduating, he spent three years teaching an introduction course to issues of political economy in the context of sustainable development at the Centre for Environment and Development Studies (CEMUS) at Uppsala University. When he’s not reading about degrowth, Parrique enjoys extreme sports, playing chess, and memorising random numbers.
