Membership of the International Society for Ecological Economics

Doing some more work on my article on ecological economics. I was actually surprised to find that ISEE membership is at the strongest point I've seen it with 3049 members worldwide. There have been booms and busts in membership over time with particularly successful international conferences raising membership for a while and lots of changes of membership structure and location of the society organization. For example, in 2006 I only found 797 members listed, worldwide. Today, there are almost that many just in Europe. Europe does have the largest number of members. Back in 2004 the Brazilian chapter was biggest. Here is a chart organized by the regional "chapters":

"Other" are "at large" members who live in countries without a regional chapter. For example, Japan and China. A couple of things to note:

  • There are very few members in Russia now, once a quite large chapter.
  • Australia-NZ, Canada, and Argentina-Uruguay all have quite a lot of members - 202, 169, and 188 - relative to their population.
