CALL FOR PAPERS: Sixth Biennial Conference of the Indian Society for Ecological Economics
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.

Papers of the following genres in all sub-themes are especially welcome:
- 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.
- those that use and assess methodological pluralism vis-a-vis examining nature across disciplines.
List of themes:
- Ecosystems and Ecosystem Services for Life and Human Well- being
- Accounting for Nature
- Global and Local Impact of Economic Growth, Trade and Globalisation on the Environment (at different scales)
