Dr Vlad Mykhnenko
Note: Vlad Mykhnenko is on sabbatical leave until 15 January 2024 (Hilary Term 2024).
Vlad Mykhnenko is an economic geographer, specialising in geographical political economy. Empirically, over the past twenty years, Mykhnenko’s research interests have expanded from the urban and regional economies of the post-communist eastern Europe (esp., Polish Upper Silesia and the Ukrainian Donbas) - the global East - to encompass the local development phenomena observed across the global North and the global South. Over the past twenty years, he has produced over 125 research outputs, containing books, articles in top quartile peer-reviewed journals, including Applied Geography, Cambridge Journal of Regions Economy and Society, Cities, Environment and Planning A, Environment and Planning C, European Planning Studies, European Urban and Regional Studies, Europe-Asia Studies, The Geographical Journal, International Planning Studies, Journal of Communist Studies and Transition Politics, Journal of Economic Geography, Journal of Geography in Higher Education, Journal of Urban Affairs, Oxford Review of Economic Policy, Regional Studies, Urban Research & Practice, digital artefacts, and other documents. Vlad currently serves on the editorial boards of Eurasian Geography & Economics, and Chinese Geographical Science.
Dr. Mykhnenko’s research has so far generated over £8.5 million in external research funding, with £1.8 million as a Principal Investigator. Recently, he has served as Consortium Lead and Principal Investigator of the Smart Shrinkage Solutions research project (3S RECIPE, €1.7m, 2017-2020) funded by the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe and the UKRI Economic and Social Research Council, before pursuing a series of industry-funded research projects on the future of cities and work, the future of environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG)-influenced investment, the metaverse, and the future of money. Currently, Vlad is carrying out several externally-funded research initiatives, ranging from green steel, rebuilding Ukraine’s iron and steel sector post-war without the use of fossil fuels, to sustainable urban development in Kazakhstan.
Vlad Mykhnenko holds a PhD in Political Economy from Darwin College, the University of Cambridge (2005); an MA in International Relations and European Studies from the Central European University (CEU, 1999); and an MA (1998) and a BA (1996) in International Relations from Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv. He joined the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education (OUDCE or ContEd) in January 2017 to take up an Associate Professorship in Sustainable Urban Development, alongside a Research Fellowship in Sustainable Urban Development at St. Peter’s College, Oxford. Between 2018-2021, Vlad served as Continuing Education Director of Graduate Studies for Postgraduate Research Students (DGS Research).
Prior to Oxford, Dr. Mykhnenko was Lecturer in Human Geography, Urban Adaptation and Resilience at the University of Birmingham (2008-2012); Visiting Professor at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University in Almaty (Autumn 2014); and held a series of successive Research Fellowships at the University of Nottingham (2008-2011), the University of Glasgow (2005-2008), and the CEU Centre for Policy Studies in Budapest (2003-2004).
Dr. Mykhnenko regularly acts in an advisory capacity for the public, private, and civil society sectors, municipal and regional governments, intergovernmental organisations, and multinational companies. He currently serves as a non-executive director of Oxford International Study Abroad Programme Ltd., an EQAC-accredited short course provider. In 2015, he was appointed by the Secretary-General of the UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development to a High-Level expert group of 200 leading urbanists to provide UN-Habitat with independent policy recommendations. Vlad’s policy unit #9 submission on Urban Services and Technology has subsequently formed an integral part of the New Urban Agenda – a universal framework of actions for housing and sustainable urban development, which was officially adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2016. In addition, he has sat on the Advisory Group on Declining Cities at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (2014-2015). More recently, Dr. Mykhnenko has given expert evidence in public to the UK House of Commons, in connection with the Foreign Affairs Committee inquiry into the challenges of Recovery in Ukraine. In May 2023, Vlad was invited by the Mayor of Mariupol to advise Mr. Boichenko and the local authority on Mariupol Reborn – a post-liberation revival strategy for the pulverised east Ukrainian city. In September 2023, he also joined a new 8 world-leading experts’ strong Consultation Group on Shrinking Smartly and Sustainably at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD, 2023-2026).
Vlad is originally from Donetsk, Ukraine.
The great bulk of Vlad’s academic research is devoted to geographical political economy – a transdisciplinary study of spatialities, landscapes, and contested futures of modern capitalism, its varieties, development trajectories, and alternatives. Geographical political economy is founded on the assumption that economic, political, cultural, and environmental processes are necessarily related – co-evolving spatially, and co-implicated territorially with each other. The connective thread throughout much of his work has involved the application of theoretical, conceptual, and methodological dimensions of economic geography, geographical economics, and comparative political economy to the real-world challenges of urban and regional growth and decline, development and de-development, shrinkage, and resilience in the context of chronic stress (e.g., de-industrialisation, out-migration, sub-replacement fertility) and sudden shock events (e.g., natural disasters, revolutions, wars).

His commitment to research-led and research-orientated teaching was recognised in 2014, when Vlad achieved the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and in 2015, when he was awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (Merit) by the University of Birmingham. The outcome of Vlad's award-winning 4-year pedagogical experimentation with technology-enhanced learning tools and techniques was consequently published as a peer-reviewed academic paper in The Journal of Geography in Higher Education (see here).
At Oxford, Dr. Mykhnenko makes a full contribution to the Department’s flagship MSc in Sustainable Urban Development (MSUD) Course, regularly contributing to its teaching weeks (modules) and co-leading Teaching Week M1 Introducing Sustainable Urban Development, and M6 Urbanism, Community and City-Building. In addition, Vlad serves as a course admissions officer, a personal tutor to MSUD students, and regularly assesses their course assignments; since 2017, he has supervised 21 MSUD dissertation students.
