Anne Alombert

Anne Alombert is a Teacher and Researcher in philosophy at Université Paris 8. She is the author of a thesis in philosophy that focuses on the relationships between life, technics and spirit in the work of Gilbert Simondon and Jacques Derrida. Her researches focus on the works of Simondon, Derrida and Stiegler, on the relationships between knowledge and technics, on the anthropological issues raised by digital technologies and on the question of the “Entropocene”. She participated in the development of a contributory research program that aimed at experimenting with a model of contributory economy. She is co-author of the book Bifurcate, written with Bernard Stiegler and the Internation collective.

Elena De Nictolis

Elena De Nictolis is a postdoctoral fellow at GEJP and visiting researcher at Harry Radzyner Law School ICD Herzliya. She holds a Ph.D. in Political Theory, Political Science, and Political History from Luiss University (Rome, Italy). During her Ph.D., she was a visiting at the Urban Law Center of Fordham University. Before joining GEJP, she was a postdoctoral fellow (2019-2021) at the Luiss Department of Political Science where she conducted research within – an international applied research laboratory on the commons and urban commons created by Luiss University and then expanded and working in close partnership with LabGov Georgetown, LabGov Costa Rica, and LabGov Hong Kong. At Luiss she was also a teaching fellow/adjunct professor (regulatory innovation; governance of innovation and sustainability; urban law and policy). Her primary research interests are in urban public policies and law, collective action in cities and urban commons, urban climate justice, and quality of democracy at the local level.

She is currently conducting comparative analyses of urban laws and policies, particularly as they are shaped and implemented as a response to global crises (health; social, technological, environmental; energy); she is also investigating how multi-actor and multi-level partnerships can support collaborative governance arrangements to respond to the same global challenges, overcoming collective action problems.

Keywords: Urban public policies and laws, collective action in cities and urban commons, urban climate justice, quality of democracy at the local level

Hugo Martin

Hugo’s research aims to integrate the impacts of human societies on the earth’s climate by linking macroeconomic models to climate models. This interaction is crucial for the understanding of global warming. Indeed, depending on economic scenarios, CO2 emissions can change dramatically, always increasing with global production. In the face of global warming, international economic policies must be carefully chosen. Their objective must be the perfect control of CO2 emissions as well as the improvement of social progress. Therefore, determining precisely what changes would be induced on the earth’s climate by CO2 emissions is definitely a cornerstone of any rigorous planning of economic policies. Numerical simulations provide a useful toolbox for testing any economic strategy and directly observing their consequences on our environment.

Timothée Nicolas

Timothée Nicolas.

Timothée works in close collaboration with Hugo Martin on macroeconomic simulations, considering macroeconomy as a dynamic system in interaction with climate, which is described by a simplified GCM model. The aim is to understand how climate change can affect the economy, first at a global level, and eventually at the regional level, and how cuts in CO2 emissions might preserve the economy.

Strength and Light

Maria’s work aims to create a space dedicated to young Economists who want to build on the work developed around the Economy of Francesco to build a World in Common. In this space, young economists will be able to discern how to reform the world’s economy and develop their projects and research in this field. This way, they will be able to become actors able to ensure the ecological and social reconstruction of our societies by overtaking the limits of conventional economics. It will be a place to exchange ideas for young economists, social organizations, and actors of civil society who want to fight climate change through this framework.

Ne’er forget the people

Carrick supports the program’s participation in international projects, specifically managing an exploratory study of the territorial, economic, and socio-political implications of organic agriculture in Mongolia. His work focuses on evaluating the feasibility of establishing a network of organic farms and associated human settlements that will ensure self-sufficiency and inclusive growth, respect traditional heritage, and foster environmental justice in the country.

Camille Souffron 

Student at the ENS Ulm (Paris), Camille’s research focuses on dynamic non-linear and non-equilibrium economic modeling in collaboration with Paul Valcke with the objective of integrating emergence, complexity and multisectorial in macroeconomic models, notably for the ecological transition and in dialogue with traditional economic models. Another part of his work deals more broadly with the epistemology of economics and the history of its thought under a critical and peirastic prism. Also trained in law, he is similarly interested in economic public policy, including proposals to cancel public debts on central banks’ balance sheets and the doctrine of odious debt. He teaches environmental economics at the ENS Ulm.

Keywords: complexity and non-equilibrium macroeconomics and modeling, ecological economics, law and public debt, epistemology
