Indian Society for Ecological Economics
Sixth Biennial Conference
The Sixth Biennial Conference of the Indian Society for Ecological Economics (INSEE) on “Nature, Economy and Society: Understanding the Linkages” will be held during 20-22 October, 2011 at the Centre for Economic and Social Studies (CESS), Hyderabad.
The conference shall address a diverse repertoire of issues at the interface of nature, economy and society and explore how to use the understanding for policy formulation. The discussion of issues is expected to cover cutting-edge conceptual and methodological advances being made in the different disciplines and also address current policy relevant problems in the area of environment, development and social justice. Papers are expected to focus on the following genres:
(a) those that evaluate completed and ongoing government programmes and policies ( in particular in South Asia) in terms of contribution to conservation and future growth and examine challenges in formulating and implementing policies.
(b) those that use and assess methodological pluralism vis-a-vis examining nature across disciplines.
