My research focuses on organisations in a degrowth society. This means on the one hand what organisations could look like in a post-growth society. On the other hand, how organisations can help to reduce throughput and help achieve a degrowth paradigm shift. The focus lies in researching organisations and modes of production utilising the digital commons, this means particularly, peer production organisations. The aim is to research these organisations in connection to society as well as the natural environment.
