    • Economics of Development and Environment (270178)

      Termine:Lehrpersonen:
      Di. 11:00 - 12:30Tr. Nguyen, Waibel

      Inhalt:

      The course introduces the students into important fundamental economic aspects of development, environment and trade. It provides an overview of socioeconomic and demographic developments and world-wide trends (urbanization, digitalisation) which characterize the globalizing world. It focuses on environmental concepts and terms (e.g. externalities, public goods, optimal pollution). Economic growth theories for development and poverty concepts are discussed next to sustainability concepts or footprints. Interlinkages between development and environmental issues are clearly identified and analysed. International framework conventions and organisations in charge of both development and environment are briefly introduced.

      Literatur:

      Selected articles will be provided during the course.

      Bemerkungen:

      Erwartete Vorkenntnisse: Modules of the first two terms; fair command of English language: the students should have a basic understanding of microeconomic theory. They are free to choose the language – English or German – in the exam.

    • Environmental Economics (172876)

      Termine:Lehrpersonen:
      Di. 12:45 - 14:15Bierkamp, Schulte

      Inhalt:

      The course focuses on the following four major topics: (1) the economics of pollution (the role of taxes, standards, subsidies, labeling, marketable pollution permits and payments for environmental services); (2) methods for valuing the environment (revealed, imputed and expressed willingness to pay); (3) accounting and integrative methods (footprints, national accounting matrix, life cycle analysis), and (4) the economics of natural resources (renewable and exhaustible resources ; extinction of species).

    • Energy Economics (172878)

      Termine:Lehrpersonen:
      Di. 14:30 - 16:00Tr. Nguyen

      Inhalt:

      Access to energy is the linchpin of industrial production. Yet the energy market itself is not an ordinary commodity market. In this context many questions arise: What drives energy prices on this market? How is trade of energy products regulated and distorted? How do players deal with market imbalances? How do environmental concerns factor in?

      This course will provide you with tools to analyse these and other questions linked to energy value chain. With an emphasis on environmental issues we will cover topics surrounding the energy sector like the certification schemes, CO2 trade, national and global institutions, resource management, market power and others.

    Area International Environment and Development Studies

    • Seminar Asian Economies (377000)

      Termine:Lehrpersonen:
      BlockveranstaltungTr. Nguyen, Waibel

      Inhalt:

      In a written assignment, students will be given a topic of current economic issues relating to European Asian economic relations. They will prepare an essay of some 10 pages following the format of a seminar paper. The topics will be given at the beginning of the course and students will present their papers during the second half of the course. The aim of the assignments is to generate a more in-depth understanding of

      • the analysis of development strategies taken by selected Asian countries
      • economic structure and institutional settings that have facilitated the economic success of these countries
      • economic relationships to European countries and how these relationships have influenced the growth of their economies.
    • Data Collection (377005)

      Termine:Lehrpersonen:
      Mo. 12:45 - 14:15Schulte, Seewald, Wendt

      Inhalt:

      The course will provide in-depth knowledge on the design and the organization of surveys for collecting representative household data in emerging market economies; main topics include: sampling design, interview techniques, questionnire design, data cleaning and use of secondary data.

    • International Business Relations (377008)

      Termine:Lehrpersonen:
      Mo. 14:30 - 16:00Sharma, Waibel

      Inhalt:

      The basic idea of the course »International Business Relations« is to link current topics and issues from development economics to the major International Organizations and Agencies in Development Assistance. Development Organisations generally follow different development strategies and theoretical concepts which are not made apparent in conventional textbooks of development economics. However, it becomes increasingly important to understand such connections. Exploring them will make the agenda and interests of development agencies more transparent and allows those engaged in development activities to better understand the arguments and actions forwarded by these agencies. More in detail, the course will be structured into major current development topics like the effectiveness of development assistance; underdevelopment, poverty, and vulnerability; sustainability, food safety and food security; world food crisis and price fluctuations; globalization and trade, and climate change. These topics have been developed, adjusted and shaped by major socio-economic, institutional and political and environmental trends over time. They were taken up by different international organisations and agencies like the United Nations System, the World Bank, the Regional Development Banks, the World Trade Organisation, the German Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation, private sector organisations including the German Technical Agency (GIZ), or non-governmental organizations. As major objectives of the course, the students will (i) get familiarized with the major players in development assistance, (ii) learn about the development strategies and conceptual theories, and (iii) discover the connection between development strategies of international organisations and their underlying economic and development theories.

      • Economic and environmental modeling
      • Relevance of simulation modeling for science, policy-planning and decision-making
