Louison Cahen-FourotLouison Cahen-Fourot

I am assistant professor in Economics at the Department of Social Sciences and Business at Roskilde University in Denmark. I work in the broad fields of ecological macroeconomics, the political economy of capitalism and the environment and the money and finance-sustainability nexus, on topics such as the economic and financial conditions and consequences of the low-carbon transition, the diversity of capitalism and the social relation to the environment, or the interdependencies and interconnections between socio-ecological metabolism and socio-economic dynamics of contemporary economies. I use qualitative analysis as well as quantitative tools. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Economic and Social Administration from the University of Bordeaux (France), a master’s degree in Sustainable development in transition and developing countries from Clermont-Auvergne University (France), a master’s degree in International Economics, Finance and Regulation and a PhD in Economics from Sorbonne Paris Nord University. Before Roskilde University, I have been a postdoc researcher at the Institute for Ecological Economics at the WU Vienna University of Economics and Business from 2017 to 2021 where I remain a guest researcher. Until November 2021 I was also a member of the coordinating group of the Post-growth Economics Network and I coordinate its soon-to-be working paper series.

I decided to run for a position in the board because I believe it is important that younger generation are represented in the structuring institutions of Ecological Economics. I am eager to strengthen the relations between the ISEE and other emerging networks in Ecological Economics such as the Post-growth Economics Network and I also intend to work towards establishing more connections and cooperations between Ecological Economics and other fellow traditions in Political Economy as I strongly believe that would benefit both Ecological Economics and these approaches. Last but not least, I am interested in fostering knowledge popularization beyond the walls of academia.
