Institute of Human Geography

The Institute of Human Geography (IHG) is a non-profit charitable foundation. The mission of the Institute is to produce, promote, and fund critical scholarship that falls broadly within the category of human geography. All excess funds generated through our projects, including Human Geography (the journal) and Radical Geography (book series) are in turn expended annually as Research Grants. No IHG board members, including journal and book editors, receives a stipend, salary, or wage from the Institute. All decisions on grant funding are made collectively by the members of the IHG board and the editors. Our ethos is: those who do the work, make the decisions. We call it "institutional socialism".
