feminist economist from Mexico

  • looking for feminist economist in Mexico
  • asking Michael Alvarez
  • sbd. from the minery and fishery sector


  1. NAME: Santiago Moura Hoerth, Codigosur, Costa Rica

Suggestions from Michael AlvarezKalverkamp

"I would rapidly suggest Walter Pengue (Argentina), who has been organizing regional academic weeks on Eco-Economy (not green economy) for a couple of years already in Buenos Aires (although he is more specialized in Agroindustrial research). Maristella Svampa is already on Your list, she is an outstanding expert too in minery, for the fishery issues in Chile Pedro Avendaño Garcés (vice-rector Universidad del Mar Viña del Mar, working with and on small and industrial fishery), also Chile Flavia Liberona (NGO Terram, working on salmon industry and fishery), Paraguay Oscar Rivas (Ex-Minister for Environmental affairs, NGO Sobrevivencia), who did a lot of work with the fishery sector there).

Suggestions from Herve Le Crosnier:

'May be we can have José Correa higher on the list.

       You know that Alberto Acosta will be candidate for
       the next presidential election in Ecuador, so I think
       he wont be easily accessible.
       I fear that no indigenous representative is on the
       short list...
       May be Adelita San Vicente, from Mexico, who is the
       head of "Semillas de Vida" in Mexico is a good local
       choice (she wrote an article in the book "Libres Savoirs"
       about knowxledge commons we published last year.
       I have two mails :
       Adela San Vicente <[email protected]>
       Adelita San Vicente <[email protected]>
       To decide if Sergio Amadeus is a good choice, we
       have a video of its intervention at the first
       World Forum on science & democracy by fevruary 2009
