Hali Healy is a lecturer at UJ in the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies. She has co-authored and co-ordinated work on two EC funded projects on sustainable development. One of these was EJOLT (Environmental Justice Organizations, Liabilities and Trade - www.ejolt.org 2011-2014), a project that linked researchers from the sustainability sciences and environmental justice organisations (EJOs). Another was CEECEC (Civil Society Engagement with Ecological Economics- www.ceecec.net 2008-2010) which built NGO capacities to apply the concepts and tools of ecological economics to campaigning/programme activities. On the basis of this work Hali has published several peer-reviewed articles, and co-edited a book, Ecological Economics from the Ground. Up (Routledge, 2013). Her PhD (awarded in 2018 by King’s College London, Geography), is entitled “The Political Ecology of Transdisciplinary Research: From Co-optation to Unintended Consequences?”.
