The objectives of IJGE are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions concerned with the running, involvement and impact of the economy on all sections of society. It aims to bridge the gap between academic economic theory and the literature and suggestions for the implementation of modern concepts in the political economy and the general economic debate, structures of political power and public discussion.

The development of an alternative view in contrast to the traditional normatively biased view of economics is the prime objective. The study of Green Economics naturally has to be very multi and interdisciplinary in nature, as the problems it addresses are partly social in aspect and causes, partly scientific in technical development, partly environmental as this is a fundamental limit to all human activity and partly economic and historical in how the current situations have evolved. Green Economics is also particularly influenced by developments in ethical thinking and values and in anthropology in its explanations of past and future trends.

The scope of IJGE includes examining, critiquing and analysing the activities of corporations with particular reference to the localisation/globalisation debate and making suggestions for change in practise and general function and approach. IJGE takes an international perspective, as modern economies are interdependent and internationally linked; the Green Economics discipline has therefore to be international in scope and in the solutions it proposes. The advisory board and activities are international in nature and the main management board consists of German, English, Brazilian and US personnel, with branches in Brazil and the US. The advisory board consists of a host of academics and practitioners, government members, policy makers and campaigners from round the world in order to meet the demands and the wide scope of the subject.


IJGE provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers, policy makers and campaigners working in the fields of international business, economics and local, regional and national government to educate, influence, lobby and share information and to learn from each others’ work and best practice in the field as well as to provide a forum to explore new solutions to economic problems.


IJGE publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries and news. Special issues will be devoted to subjects such as globalisation/localisation, international economics etc. Our wide and very experienced advisory board (which is additional to our academic panel) are particularly being asked to develop topical and important subjects over time which they believe from their work and research to be of most relevance and interest.
