Dr Vlad Mykhnenko

Profile details

Academic Profile

Vlad Mykhnenko is an economic geographer, who joined the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education (OUDCE) in January 2017 to take up the Associate Professorship in Sustainable Urban Development, alongside the Research Fellowship in Sustainable Urban Development at St. Peter's College, Oxford.  Since February 2018, he has served as the OUDCE Director of Graduate Studies for Postgraduate Research Students (DGS Research).

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 the Institute of International Relations, Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. He previously served as Lecturer in Human Geography, Urban Adaptation and Resilience in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (University of Birmingham); Visiting Professor in the Department of Geography, Land Management and Cadastre (Al-Farabi Kazakh National University in Almaty); and held a series of successive Research Fellowships in the School of Geography (University of Nottingham), Department of Urban Studies (University of Glasgow), and at the CEU Centre for Policy Studies in Budapest.

Vlad Mykhnenko is originally from Donetsk.

Mykhnenko’s writing and teaching focus on the application of theoretical, conceptual, and methodological dimensions of economic geography and comparative political economy to real-world challenges of urban and regional development, de-development, shrinkage, and resilience. Overall, his research agenda revolves around one key question: “What can economic geography contribute to our understanding of this or that problem?” Substantively, Mykhnenko’s academic research is devoted to geographical political economy – a trans-disciplinary study of the variegated landscape of capitalism. Since 2003, he has produced well over 100 research outputs, including books, journal articles, other documents, and digital artefacts.

Mykhnenko is one of the world’s most highly cited urban and economic geographers of his generation. According to the Web of Science Core Collection (Clarivate  Analytics) as well as Scopus (Elsevier) databases, Mykhnenko’s publications are ranked amongst the top 0.2% most cited globally in urban studies between 2001 and 2021; and amongst the top 0.4% (Scopus) or the top 0.5% (Web of Science) publications most cited globally on post-communist eastern Europe. Furthermore, according to Scopus, between 2001 and 2021, his research outputs were ranked amongst the top 2% most cited globally in economic geography; whereas the Web of Science Core Collection ranks his publications amongst the top 2.5% most cited globally in geography, as a whole.

In 2015, Mykhnenko was appointed by the Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development to a high-level expert group of 200 urbanists worldwide to provide UN HABITAT with independent policy recommendations on key issues related to sustainable urban development. Consequently, Mykhnenko’s policy unit No 9. Urban Services and Technology contribution has formed an integral part of the New Urban Agenda – an action-oriented UN document rethinking the way we build, manage, and live in cities, and setting global standards of achievement in sustainable urban development. The New Urban Agenda was officially adopted on 23 December 2016 by the General Assembly of the United Nations. Mykhnenko’s close involvement in shaping up the United Nations’ flagship policy ought to be guiding the efforts around urbanisation of a wide range of actors — the nation states, city and regional leaders, international development funders, UN programmes, and civil society — for the following two decades. (For the final version in more than 30 most widely spoken languages in the world, see here).

Mykhnenko’s research has so far generated over £7 million in external research funding (in today’s prices), with over £1.5 million as a Principal Investigator. At Oxford, Mykhnenko has served as the Consortium Lead and Principal Investigator of the Smart Shrinkage Solutions (3S RECIPE) research programme funded by the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe and the UKRI Economic and Social Research Council. During this period, he has also served as a Co-Investigator on the UKRI Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded PaCCS Innovation Awards on Conflict and International Development grant, successfully exposing Ukraine’s hidden tragedy of forced population displacement from the country’s war-torn regions (for full details, see below). 

Aspects of Mykhnenko’s research and analysis have been discussed and featured in the BBC NewsBBC World Service, CSSN - Chinese Social Sciences NetThe Daily TelegraphThe Financial TimesForbes MagazineThe Irish IndependentIrish VoicePlanningPlanning ResourceSvenska Dagbladet, as well as local media outlets in various countries, including The Evening Chronicle (Newcastle, UK), The Evening Times (Glasgow, UK), The Press and Journal (Aberdeen, UK), and Donetskie NovostiHromadske RadioNovosti KrymaNovosti Luganska,  RBC UkraineSvobodaCXID.InfoUkraiinski NovynyUkraiinska PravdaVesti Ukrainy, and Ukrinform News Agency (all - Ukraine).

Research

Mykhnenko’s academic research is devoted to geographical political economy – a trans-disciplinary study of the spatialities and the variegated landscape of capitalism. 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. In this context, Mykhnenko's scholarly contribution to advance knowledge has focussed on the accumulation, distribution, and exercise of political and economic power in a given urban and regional space, and how that influences the directions of development and policies that bear on the  latter. Empirically, over the past twenty years, his research interests have expanded from the middle-income post-communist economies of eastern Europe to encompass the urban and regional phenomena observed in high-income industrially advanced economies and beyond.

Mykhnenko’s current research is primarily focussed on the application of theoretical, conceptual, and methodological dimensions of geographical political economy to real-world challenges of urban and regional development, de-development, shrinkage, and resilience.

Teaching

Over the past twenty years, Mykhnenko has taught and supervised undergraduate and postgraduate students at ten different higher education institutions across the UK, Europe, and Central Asia. His commitment to research-led and research-orientated teaching was recognised in 2014, when Mykhnenko achieved the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), and in 2015, when he was awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice with Merit by the University of Birmingham. The outcome of his 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, Mykhnenko makes a full contribution to the Department’s flagship MSc in Sustainable Urban Development (MSUD) Course, regularly lecturing on 7 out of 8 MSUD teaching weeks (modules), including Teaching Week M1 Introducing Sustainable Urban Development; M2 Climate Change and the Built Environment; M4 Financing Sustainability; M5 Sustainable Transport; M6 Urbanism, Community and City-Building; M7 Urbanisation in the Global South; and M8 Leadership, Governance and Future Cities. In addition, Mykhnenko serves as a course admissions officer and a personal tutor to MSUD students, supervises their dissertations, and assesses their course assignments.
