Papers Due: Economics and the Environment Since the 1950s

Category: Call for Papers

Economics and the environment since the 1950s – History, methodology and Philosophy Call for papers for a special issue of the journal Cahiers d’économie politique / Papers in political economy (to be published in 2020)

This special issue is devoted to the contemporary history of environmental economic thought, and to the transition from the marginal specialization of a few pioneers to an established academic field. This new field has however branched into separate theoretical approaches: environmental economics, which partly grew out of the new welfare economics and distinguished itself from the economics of natural resources; and ecological economics which has been inspired by ecology while trying to develop new analytical tools. This evolution thus raises important issues from different perspectives: economic theory (e.g., the concepts and analytical frameworks used), philosophy (e.g., the status given to nature, the weight given to future generations) and policy (e.g., the way new environmental policies finally prevail).
