The Center for Political Ecology sponsors research and facilitates public access to political ecology by supporting the work of fellows, associates, and CPE members who document and explore the inter-relationships between economic activity, politics, culture, human rights, and the environment. Research sponsored by the Center reflects our commitment to developing theory and praxis to sustain scholarly advocacy: we document histories, processes, and conditions in ways that contribute to broader understanding of human environmental problems and problem-solving.

Publications produced by the Center are typically the product of community-based research that is conducted in collaborative and participatory ways. CPE produces pamphlets, journals, newsletters, discussion papers, policy briefings, books, and videos; and, we organize and facilitate public meetings, workshops, conferences, and political ecology panels at national and international conferences.

The Center for Political Ecology established the journal Capitalism, Nature, Socialism, an international red-green journal of theory and politics. Key themes include the dialectics of human and natural history; labor and land; workplace struggles and community struggles; economics and ecology; and the politics of ecology and ecology of politics. The journal is published in cooperation with Taylor and Francis Group.

The Center for Political Ecology is a public supported non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization incorporated in August, 1990. Research and publications are supported by foundation grants and the generosity of our Members and Sustainers.
