Institutet för nerväxtstudier (Institute for degrowth studies) is an organisation consisting of scholars, students and activists, which aims to promote and advance degrowth debates in the Nordic countries and internationally.

It stems from the 2015-16 multidisciplinary research theme on degrowth at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies (Lund University) and is also associated with the ongoing Beyond GDP-growth research programme in Sweden, as well as Research & Degrowth (founders of the degrowth conferences).

We are a very international group, coming from at least 14 different places across the globe and having got together here in Sweden.
