Dr Vlad Mykhnenko
Vlad Mykhnenko is a human geographer, whose research agenda revolves around geographical political economy – a trans-disciplinary study of the variegated landscape of capitalism. Empirically, over the past twenty years, Mykhnenko’s research interests have expanded from the middle-income post-communist urban and regional economies of eastern Europe (e.g., Polish Upper Silesia and the Ukrainian Donbas) to encompass the local development phenomena observed in high-income western Europe, and beyond (esp., mainland China). Since 2003, he has produced well over 100 research outputs, containing books; articles in top peer-reviewed journals, including Cities, Environment and Planning A, Environment and Planning C, European Urban and Regional Studies, Europe-Asia Studies, The Geographical Journal, East European Politics, Journal of Economic Geography, Journal of Geography in Higher Education, Journal of Urban Affairs, Oxford Review of Economic Policy, Regional Studies, and Urban Research & Practice; other documents; and digital artefacts. He currently serves on the editorial boards of Eurasian Geography and Economics and Chinese Geographical Science.
Mykhnenko’s research has so far generated well over £7 million in external research funding (in today’s prices), with £1.6 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 (€1.7m, 2017-2020) funded by the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe and the UKRI Economic and Social Research Council. During this period, he also served as 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 (£79k, 2016-2018). Most recently, Mykhnenko has led an industry-funded research project on What Makes Cities Tick, 2030? (£15k, 2021).
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 University of Kyiv. He joined the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education (OUDCE or ContEd) 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. From February 2018 until September 2021, he served as Continuing Education Director of Graduate Studies for Postgraduate Research Students (DGS Research).
Previously, Mykhnenko had worked as 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 at the CEU Centre for Policy Studies in Budapest (2003-2004).
Mykhnenko regularly acts in an advisory capacity for the public, private, and civil society sectors, municipal and regional governments, intergovernmental organisations, and multinational enterprises. He currently serves as a non-executive director of Oxford Study Abroad Programme Ltd., a cultural education provider. 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. This action-oriented document, which was officially adopted on 23 December 2016 by the General Assembly of the United Nations, rethinks the way we build, manage, and live in cities, setting global standards of achievement in sustainable urban development.
Aspects of Mykhnenko’s research and analysis have been discussed and featured in the BBC News, BBC News & World Service TV, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC World Service, CSSN - Chinese Social Sciences Net, The Daily Telegraph, Expresso, The Financial Times, Forbes Magazine, The Irish Independent, Irish Voice, LNK TV Žinios, Planning, Planning Resource, Social Sciences in China Press, Svenska Dagbladet, Vox, Zing News 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 Novosti, Hromadske Radio, Interfax-Ukraine, LB.UA, Novosti Kryma, Novosti Luganska, RBC Ukraine, Svoboda, CXID.Info, Ukraiinski Novyny, Ukraiinska Pravda, Vesti Ukrainy, and Ukrinform News Agency (all - Ukraine).

Vlad Mykhnenko is originally from Donetsk, Ukraine.
Mykhnenko’s academic research is devoted to geographical political economy – a trans-disciplinary study of the spatialities of capitalism and its variegated landscape. 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, his 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, Mykhnenko’s 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.
Mykhnenko is one of the world’s most highly cited human geographers of his generation. As of 1 August 2022, according to Google Scholar and Harzing’s Publish or Perish, Mykhnenko had 3259 citations with an h-index score of 24 and a g-index of 57. According to Scopus, his journal articles and books had been cited 1256 times by other Scopus-listed journal articles, with an h-index score of 13 and a g-index score of 21. A cited Web of Science reference search of all citations in Web of Science-listed journal articles to Mykhnenko’s work, including non-WoS book chapters and non-WoS journal articles, showed 1110 citations, with an h-index score of 12. According to the Web of Science Citation Index, which refers only to citations of his Web of Science Core Collection-listed publications in other core-collection-WoS-listed journal articles, Mykhnenko had been cited 981 times overall, with an h-index score of 11 and a g-index of 18.
Based on the Web of Science Core Collection (Clarivate Analytics) 30 April 2022 data, containing over 21,100 peer-reviewed, high-quality scholarly journals published worldwide in over 250 sciences, social sciences, and arts & humanities disciplines, Mykhnenko’s publications were ranked amongst the top 0.2% research outputs in urban studies most cited globally during the period 2002-2022 (1459th out of 852,400 publications on the topic of ‘cities’ or ‘urban’, in total); and amongst the top 0.5% most cited post-2002 publications on post-communist eastern Europe (357th out of 86,541 publications on the topic of ‘post-communist’ or ‘post-Soviet’ or ‘east* Europe*’). During the period 2002-2022, his research outputs were also ranked amongst the top 2% most cited publications in geography, as a whole, (1167th out of 75,213 in total).
