This paper argues that the epistemological and intellectual space of green economics is or should be located where ecological economics, even in its socio-economic perspective, still fails to provide a coherent conceptual framework such that environmental problems could be analysed in a holistic and inclusive way. Based on explanations of this failure, this paper provides a brief but structured research proposal which is based on the potential convergence between various heterodox 'schools' and which espouses explicitly Green Economics' aims.

Keywords: green economics, ecological economics, socioeconomics, sustainable development, political economy, institutional economics, post-Keynesian economics, social sustainability, environmental sustainability
