3 Month’s Visiting Researchers Supervision


Visiting Research 3 months supervision

Call for Visiting Researchers and Research Papers

To include a 3 Day Seminar at University of Oxford

June 12th 13th 14th 2018

( in a 9 day summer programme from 12th June to 22nd June 2018)

Green Economics has now entered its 15th year and as it matures it requires a body of knowledge and research to provide it with the foundations needed for it to support the global transformation that is emerging round the world as the climate and environmental change start to runnaway and visibly accelerate and affect the economy. As a result we have launched the GEI Academy for this purpose.

This first ever research seminar assesses existing literature and research and epistemology, ontology and philosophy of economics and green economics and begins to lay down a structure for suitable innovative, diverse, inclusive, pluralistic interdisciplinary and 21st century research methodologies and practise and benchmarks for practice.

In pursuance of this goal it will also investigate the semantic  hijacking of the concepts, in use to reverse the innovations, and to restore balance to the field and literature of this important concept.

In this contemporary time of fake news and reversal of enlightenment values, democracy and philosophical debate, this event will explore how populist and celebrity culture and antagonism towards facts, truth, experts and rigour can be addressed in new ways of carrying out research. The output will be papers and research providing a new methodology of research with application beyond the field too.

Therefore we are inviting 10 places for academic and policy researchers to study/research with us at the GEI in the UK, over 1 month, three months or 6 months or by skype or email to any stage researchers, new or more experienced, Professor level or beginning.

All the researchers will be required to attend our research seminar in Oxford to be held at the University in the week of the 12th June for 3 days, plus our 3 day academic conference on the 16th 17th 18 th June and our 3 day summer school on the 20th 21st 22nd June 2018 to be held at the University of Oxford.  This will provide a 9 day activity research itinerary for the researcher in addition to supervised research and outputs as below and published work.

All the research will be published. The options are:

  1. A paper entered in the special occaission research book
  2. Academic Proceedings from the academic conference for the conference.
  3. Double blind peer reviewed academic journal paper subject to usual peer review
