Vijay Kolinjivadi

Vijay's interests lie in ecological economics and social theory as it relates to human-nature relations. He completed a PhD at McGill University (2015) examining the social and political implications of economic valuation of the environment, particularly through "payments for ecosystem service" initiatives and is currently completing a post-doc at the Université du Québec en Outaouais exploring the political economy of agri-environmental policy on Canadian landscapes. He is a writer at the "Earth Negotiations Bulletin" and has considerable experience in following multi-lateral processes on "sustainable development" discourses at the international level. He is active in his community in Montréal in building solidarity with anti-oppressive struggles, especially in supporting migrant justice and raising awareness against Islamophobia and anti-caste struggles in the South-Asian diaspora.
