The Economics section covers a broad range of fields within economics including international economics and economic geography, behavioural microeconomics, labour economics and the economics of inequality. It combines state of the art theoretical and empirical research to address fundamental questions in economics. Examples of specific focus areas are the processes of globalisation and digital innovation and their impacts on workers, businesses and markets; the design of social networks; or behavioural lab- and field-experiments. The Economics section currently consists of about 30 academic staff and has a strong international orientation.
