Géraldine Thiry received her Ph.D from the Department of Economics at the University of Louvain (UCL) in May 2012. She also holds graduate degrees in advanced economics and in political sciences (international relations) from the University of Louvain. Between September 2012 and December 2013, she was post-doctoral researcher in the FP7 European Project « BRAINPOoL » (BRinging Alternative Indicators Into Policies) at the Free University of Brussels (ULB). Her main areas of research are new indicators beyond GDP, sociology of accounting, sociology of quantification and ecological economics.

Scientific Project : Indicators beyond GDP. A contribution to the emergence of socially and ecologically-literate macroeconomics / Projet scientifique : Indicateurs au-­delà du PIB. Contribution à l'émergence d'une science de la soutenabilité.

Approaches in social sciences addressing progress indicators beyond GDP are numerous today. Up to now however, these approaches are scattered and reveal many theoretical lacks and conceptual confusions. No globally shared conceptual framework exists, in which perspectives of a "beyond GDP" could be debated on a large scale.

These approaches would certainly benefit from pooling their respective contributions, in order (1) to question the relevance of their singular perspective with regard to the social and ecological constraints that condition human activity, (2) to better understand the reasons of their divergences and (3) to provide a heuristic framework to overcome these divergences or at least to make them explicit. Géraldine’s postdoctoral research is aimed at addressing this triple issue.
