The Economics section currently consists of about 30 academic staff and has a strong international orientation. Its research covers a broad range of fields within economics, including international economics, economic geography, behavioural microeconomics, labour economics, development economics, and environmental economics. Combining state-of-the-art theoretical and empirical research, our section addresses fundamental economic questions, keeping an eye on policy implications. Examples of specific focus areas include processes of globalisation and automation and the impact on workers, businesses and markets; the design of social networks and collective action; the response to environmental challenges; and lab- and field-experiments.
