Disfare e rifare il mondo: le piccole ONG e la cooperazione internazionale

Roberto Pellerey


The NGOs that are now implementing international cooperation in the “impoverished” countries follow methods and principles based on real knowledge and collaboration with the communities in which they operate, totally different from the interventions of the 1950s and 1990s, based on industrialization and the realization of large infrastructures for industrial development. With the new principles, NGOs have made stable living conditions improvements in their communities, and communities have taken over control of their own lives have achieved self-sufficiency. The NGOs have thus really made societies fully responsive to the ideal model elaborated in the so-called “degrowth theory” (the article discusses its basic theoretical lines), which instead focuses its attention only on what happens in Western societies. Degrowth society already exists, not in Europe but in the “ex-impoverished” countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America.
