The International Society for Ecological Economics (ISEE) was founded in 1989 to promote ecological economics and assist ecological economists and related societies. The society publishes a monthly journal Ecological Economics, books and other materials, and holds periodic meetings and conferences to facilitate a voice for ecological economists.
The ISEE was initially presided by Robert Costanza who was also the first editor of the journal. Subsequent presidents have been Richard B. Norgaard, John Proops, Charles Perrings, Joan Martinez Alier and Peter May. The current president is John Gowdy and the president-elect for 2010–11 was Bina Agarwal, a Professor of Economics at the Institute of Economic Growth, University of Delhi, India. The journal is currently edited by Richard B. Howarth.
The ISEE is divided into regional societies. There are currently ten regional societies:
- Africa (ASEE)
- Argentina and Uruguay (ASAUEE)
- Australia and New Zealand (ANZSEE)
- Brazil (Eco-Eco),
- Canada (CANSEE)
- European Union (ESEE)
- Mesoamerica (SMEE)
- India (INSEE)
- Russia (RSEE)
- United States (USSEE)
There is also a Chinese Ecological Economics Society which is not affiliated to the ISEE and an Iberoamerican Network, REDIBEC.
The 11th Biennial ISEE Conference, entitled "Advancing Sustainability in a Time of Crises", was to have taken place 22–25 August 2010, in Oldenburg and Bremen, Germany.
