The chair International Macroeconomics was created in 2010 as a merger of the previously separate chairs in International Economics and Macroeconomics, partially for organisational reasons and partially to acknowledge the increasing international interdependencies between countries at the macroeconomic level.
The new chair analyses a broad range of macroeconomic problems and theories in an international perspective, with a focus on:
- economic growth, dynamics, and structural change;
- geography and location;
- multilateral international institutions.
We strive for research analysing important practical problems, based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation.
