International Journal of Green Economics (IJGE)
The IJGE, a peer-reviewed international journal, proposes and fosters
discussion on all aspects of Green Economics. It contributes to
international research and practice in Green Economics with the aim of
encouraging economic change and the positioning of Green Economics at the
centre of the Economics disciplines. Green Economic theories and policies,
tools, instruments and metrics are developed with the aim of offering
practical and theoretical solutions and proposals to facilitate a change to
the current economic models for the benefit of the widest number of people
and the planet as a whole.
IJGE focuses particularly on resource management, on meeting peoples¹ needs
and the impact and effects of international trends and how to increase
The objectives of IJGE are to establish an effective channel of
communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and
research institutions concerned with the running, involvement and impact of
the economy on all sections of society. It aims to bridge the gap between
academic economic theory and the literature and suggestions for the
implementation of modern concepts in the political economy and the general
economic debate, structures of political power and public discussion.
The development of an alternative view in contrast to the traditional
normatively biased view of economics is the prime objective. The study of
Green Economics naturally has to be very multi and interdisciplinary in
nature, as the problems it addresses are partly social in aspect and causes,
partly scientific in technical development, partly environmental as this is
a fundamental limit to all human activity and partly economic and historical
in how the current situations have evolved.
Green Economics is also particularly influenced by developments in ethical
thinking and values and in anthropology in its explanations of past and
The scope of IJGE includes examining, critiquing and analysing the
activities of corporations with particular reference to the
localisation/globalisation debate and making suggestions for change in
practise and general function and approach. IJGE takes an international
perspective, as modern economies are interdependent and internationally
linked; the Green Economics discipline has therefore to be international in
scope and in the solutions it proposes.
The advisory board and activities are international in nature and the main
management board consists of German, English, Brazilian and US personnel,
with branches in Brazil and the US. The advisory board consists of a host of
academics and practitioners, government members, policy makers and
campaigners from round the world in order to meet the demands and the wide
scope of the subject.
