We are looking for a volunteer to join FinGeo team!
The Global Network on Financial Geography (FinGeo) is an open and interdisciplinary network of academics, practitioners and experts interested in research on the spatiality of money and finance and its implications for the economy, society, and nature. The inaugural FinGeo Executive Committee was established in August 2016, with the website launched in March 2017 (www.fingeo.net ). Since then the Network has published 13 working papers, awarded dissertation prizes, and organized many events, including the forthcoming First FinGeo Spring School in Brussels. Our membership has grown to over 450 members from nearly 50 countries. The Executive Committee members contribute to FinGeo on a voluntary basis, free of charge, using financial resources from their own institutions, and sharing financial resources secured through research network grants.
