Dr Vlad Mykhnenko
Dr Vlad Mykhnenko is an economic geographer, working on a range of issues relating to urban and regional economic development, and geographical political economy. Vlad was educated at the Institute of International Relations, Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, for his BA (1996) and MA in International Relations (1998), and at the Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, for his MA (1999) in International Relations and European Studies. He was then awarded an Open Society Foundation – Cambridge Overseas Trust Scholarship to read for a PhD in Political Economy at Darwin College, the University of Cambridge, completed in 2005. In 2003-2004, Vlad worked as an international policy fellow at the CEU Centre for Policy Studies in Budapest. In February 2005, Dr Mykhnenko took up the post of Research Fellow at the Department of Urban Studies, University of Glasgow, where he remained until October 2008, before moving to the School of Geography at the University of Nottingham. In January 2012, Vlad was appointed Lecturer in Human Geography (Urban Adaptation and Resilience) in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham, where he obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP, 2015). In 2014, Dr Mykhnenko briefly served as a visiting professor at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University in Almaty (Kazakhstan).
Vlad joined the University of Oxford in January 2017 as an associate professor of sustainable urban development at the Department for Continuing Education. He is currently the Department’s Director of Graduate Studies for Postgraduate Research Students (DGS-R). Dr Mykhnenko is also a research fellow in sustainable urban development at St. Peter’s College, Oxford.
Dr Mykhnenko is originally from Donetsk.
Much of Vlad's research focusses on the interrelationship between spatial imbalances in production and income, urban growth and decline, state fiscal power inequalities, territorial cohesion, and societal conflict. Empirically, he works with urban and regional data gathered in developing middle-income countries and territories (ODA countries) as well as in high-income, industrially advanced economies (OECD). Dr Mykhnenko's current areas of research include the following:
- Sustainable urban development: Social production of urban space. Shrinking cities. Resilience.
- Urban governance: Public policy and state response to chronic stress ('slow-burn') and sudden shocks.
- Regional growth: Structural adjustment. De-industrialisation and re-industrialisation. The knowledge-based economy. Economic convergence and divergence.
- Geographical political economy: Spatial distribution of national income. Local government finance. Fiscal federalism. Rescaling of statehood. Territorial cohesion. Economic separatism.

Completed Research Projects
- 2003-2004: Rusting away? Post-Communist States and the Politics of Steel
A policy research project conducted at the Open Society Institute International Policy Fellowships Programme in affiliation with the CEU Centre for Policy Studies in Budapest. It focussed on the state capacity in leading economic sectors in the post-communist Europe, particularly the Ukrainian iron & steel industry.
- 2005-2008: Cities and Regions: Changing Spatial Imbalances
In collaboration with Prof Ivan Turok at the Department of Urban Studies, University of Glasgow, Vlad worked on understanding spatial economic change and changing urban imbalances in Europe. The project examined diverse trajectories and the variable performance of cities across Western and Eastern Europe, drew out the implications for urban and regional development policy, and engaged with public policy stakeholders.
- 2006-2008: Neoliberalism, Anti-Neoliberalism, and De-Ideologisation
Jointly with Dr Kean Birch and Dr Katherine Trebeck at the University of Glasgow, Vlad ran a special seminar series financed by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The seminar series considered neo-liberalism - an ideology characterised by an antipathy towards state involvement in economic exchange and an emphasis on the benefits of market forces.
The seminar series resulted in the publication of an edited volume on The Rise and Fall of Neoliberalism (Birch and Mykhnenko, 2010).
This collaborative research project was based on comparative case studies from seven cities and conurbations throughout Europe with a focus on disadvantaged urban regions in eastern, southern, and western Europe, suffering from economic decline, population loss, and a lack of social cohesion. The work provided a basis for a new conceptual model of urban shrinkage.
- 2009-2013: Cities Re-growing Smaller - Fostering Knowledge on Regeneration Strategies in Shrinking Cities across Europe (COST Action TU0803 supported by the EU RTD Framework Programme)
The main objective of the Action was to foster the interdisciplinary knowledge of regeneration strategies in shrinking cities across Europe. By promoting the exchange of scientific knowledge in Europe and stimulating new ideas in selected reference cities, the network acted as a catalyst for innovative solutions to deal with demographic change and urban decline.
- 2016: Socio-spatial inequalities: a debate around the concepts of exclusion, segregation, fragmentation, and resilience
A collaborative research project with Prof Eliseu Saverio Sposito, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Presidente Prudente, UNESP (Brazil), aimed at debating the concepts of exclusion, segregation, fragmentation, and resilience in the context of the Global South.
- 2016-2018: Ukraine’s hidden tragedy: understanding the outcomes of population displacement from the country’s war-torn regions.
An Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded project under the auspices of the GCRF/PaCCS Interdisciplinary Innovation Awards on Conflict and International Development.

Outreach and Policy Impact
Most recently, Dr Mykhnenko ran a special University Session on 'Global linkages and territorial imbalances in Europe and beyond' during the European October Week of Regions and Cities 2018 at the European Commission, Brussels (for details, see here). He also gave key-note addresses to the 7th International Urban Geographies of Post-Communist States Conference in Kyiv (26 September 2017) and to the JPI Urban Europe’s High Profile Event at the European Parliament and the Committee of the Regions in Brussels (29-30 September 2015). His recent international invitations have included talks at the Journée d’études 'Décroissance urbaine et enjeu local' at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales – EHESS, Paris (November 2017); GAsPERR (Grupo de Pesquisa Produção do Espaço e Redefinições Regionais), Universidade Estadual Paulista, UNESP Câmpus de Presidente Prudente, Brazil (2015 and 2016).
In 2015, Dr Mykhnenko was elected by the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (UN-Habitat) to join a group of chief policy experts, globally tasked with drafting the New Urban Agenda. His Policy Unit 9 Urban Services and Technology paper was later approved by the Preparatory Committee for the United Nations Habitat III conference, forming an integral part of The New Urban Agenda – the final policy document adopted by the UN HABITAT III in Quito, Ecuador, in October 2016, and finally endorsed by the UN at the 68th Plenary Meeting of the 71st Session of the General Assembly held in New York on 23 December 2016. Dr Mykhnenko’s policy engagement with the New Urban Agenda was aimed at guiding the efforts around urbanisation of a wide range of actors — nation states, city and regional leaders, international development funders, United Nations programmes, and civil society — for the next 20 years, extending its impact far into the future.
