    The Journal of Industrial Ecology is pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue on Linking Local Consumption to Global Impacts.

    For the full call for papers, please go to:

    Globalization increases the interconnectedness of people and places around the world through markets, flows of capital, labor, services, information, and human migration. Goods and services consumed in one country are often produced in other countries and exchanged via international trade.  As such, local consumption can have negative impacts on both the local and global environment, contributing to climate change, water scarcity, deforestation and other land conversions, all of which impact important ecosystem services.  The goal of this special issue is to bring together different approaches including global supply and value chain analysis, material flow analysis, life-cycle assessment, integrated impact assessment, and social network analysis to account for and analyze drivers of globalization and their global environmental impacts and global inequalities in wealth by explicitly linking the local to the global.


    Appropriate paper topics include:

    ·         Theorizing, describing and analyzing the local to global links between consumption and production within their biophysical, socio-economic and institutional contexts

    ·         Assessing how consumption and production impact the environment and society at different spatial and temporal scales

    ·         Calculating the main environmental indicators (e.g. carbon, water, land, air pollution) and socio-economic indicators (e.g. jobs, value added, wealth distribution) for different development scenarios and strategies

    ·         Synthesizing current datasets and performing analyses on trade-offs and win-win strategies towards a more sustainable future

    Submission deadline: January 15, 2015

    Sincerely,Klaus Hubacek, University of Maryland College Park, USA

    Kuishuang Feng, University of Maryland College Park, USA

    Call for papers: Journal of Industrial Ecology  special issue on Environmental Impacts of Demand-Side Technologies and Strategies for Carbon Mitigation

    Deadline: June 30, 2014 

    For the full call for papers, please go to: to reduce the emission of greenhouse (GHG) gases include supply and demand side approaches.  The focus of this special issue is on the demand side approaches.  Most research focuses on the efficacy and cost of these technologies and strategies in reducing GHG emissions.  These strategies, however, also have non-GHG environmental impacts­ on air and water quality, on human and ecosystem health as well as natural resource impacts.  Research on these non-GHG impacts is less developed than that which examines carbon mitigation.  This is especially true for demand-side strategies, which focus on improvements in energy and material efficiency.

    This special issue is intended to fill that gap.

    Call for Submissions: The 6th Annual Next Generation ESG Workshop

    One-on-One Scholarly Training for Select PhD students

    Due: February 14, 2014

    The Next Generation Workshop focusing on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues is a two-day event that brings together promising doctoral researchers and world-leading experts in ESG-related research, to foster these young researchers’ talents. More broadly, the workshop aims to establish a dialogue between current and future ESG researchers. 

    Three internationally recognized experts are invited to campus for three days May 19-21st, 2014, in conjunction with the Bentley Global Business Ethics Symposium. They will join a group of competitively chosen doctoral students in a series of presentations and discussions, including one-on-one feedback between expert and student. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Bentley’s highly regarded Teaching Business Ethics Workshop, held the same week.

    Student Selection 

    Doctoral students working in relevant areas are invited to submit papers to participate in the Next Generation ESG Workshop. We seek candidates from institutions worldwide and from different theoretical and methodological traditions. The interdisciplinary workshop welcomes applications from students in management, political science, philosophy, economics, environmental studies and sociology, to name a few. Participants must be currently enrolled in a doctoral program, preferably in their third year; their research must be ESG related.  

    Students should submit a paper of 5,000 to 7,000 words to be evaluated by a conference coordinating committee prior to the workshop. Selection criteria are the paper’s relevance to the conference focus, quality of research, practical relevance, and clarity of research description. Please note that the submission should have one author and represent work that is “in progress” but also well thought out and articulated. Selection is competitive, with students awarded stipends for travel and participation.

    Please email submissions by February 14, 2014, to:

    Cynthia Clark, PhD  |  Director, Harold S. Geneen Institute of Corporate Governance
