Melinda Mihály is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Geography of the Leipzig University and a junior research fellow in Békéscsaba at the Institute for Regional Studies CERS. Her main research field is local agency in the context of structural oppression and socio-spatial marginalization. As a secretary of the Hungarian Permaculture Association Melinda is also interested in what ways a primarily ecological movement represented by middle-class, white people could be developed in a way that it became worth joining for people outside the middle-class. The challenges and opportunities of connecting a primarily ecological movement emerging in a post state-socialist context to the solidarity economy network framed by left criticism about global capitalism also interest her.
