Description

THE RESEARCH PROJECT 

The 3 PhD research fellows will work together in the research project “Analysing and Identifying the Circular Economy’s contribution to a just Transition. A Transdisciplinary Environmental Justice Approach in the Brussels Capital Region” (AICE-T-)

The aim of the AICE-T project is to identify and analyse the potential contributions of circular economy initiatives to achieving just transitions. The AICE-T project asks the following two research questions:

  1. what are the existing practices used by circular economy initiatives to address the social and environmental issues raised in the context of their activities?
  2. how to create capacities of engagement of actors in the circular economy initiatives for contributing to improved environmental justice outcomes, in particular through social learning on values conflicts and the formation of shared narratives of change?

To address the research questions, the AICE-T project will use an innovative transdisciplinary research design, combining an assessment of existing circular economy initiatives in the Brussels Region with a set of participatory research methodologies geared toward capacity building and the fostering of organisational change. 

The researchers will benefit from the research environment of the different teams that contribute to the AICE-T project and will be hosted in the offices of one the supervisors. These research teams have been awarded several major national and European research grants in the past. With their strong focus on high quality research and with research covering the fields of management, organizational and labour sociology, human geography, political science, and philosophy, they offer a vibrant and stimulating interdisciplinary research environment. 

More specifically, the different PhD research fellows will conduct their PhD under the supervision of the following teams of co-promotors: 

  • PhD1 One doctoral fellowship in sociology and organization studies, with competences in settling of ethical conflicts in organizational settings

Matthieu de Nanteuil (promotor) and Tom Dedeurwaerdere (co-promotor)

  • PhD2 One doctoral fellowship in management and social entrepreneurship, with competences in participatory governance

Julie Hermans (promotor) and Tom Dedeurwaerdere (co-promotor)

  • PhD3 One doctoral fellowship in human or social geography, with competences in quantitative and/or qualitative analysis of environmental justice issues 

Brendan Coolsaet (promotor) and Tom Dedeurwaerdere (co-promotor)
