Entwicklungsforschung / IEE

Über uns

Der Lehrstuhl für Entwicklungsforschung beschäftigt sich in Forschung und Lehre mit den Ursachen von Wachstumserfolgen und -misserfolgen in Entwicklungs- und Schwellenländern. Darüber hinaus arbeitet der Lehrstuhl theoretisch und empirisch zu wohlfahrtsökonomisch fundierten Verfahren der Evaluierung von Entwicklungsprogrammen und
-projekten. Mit der Professur für Entwicklungsforschung ist schließlich die wissenschaftliche und administrative Leitung des Instituts für Entwicklungsforschung und Entwicklungspolitik (IEE) und der dort angesiedelten internationalen Kooperationsprojekte sowie die Lehre im  Masterstudiengang und Promotionsprogramm des IEE verbunden.

A change in the provision with public goods affects the well-being of people. Under which circumstances can these changes be measured in monetary terms? Which methods from the CBAtoolbox are available to capture the damages of an oil spill, the advantages of nature conservation, the effects of the construction of a dam, or the impact of being protected from natural hazard? These and related questions will be discussed within the module. In a lecture (first half of the semester), students are introduced to the theoretical concepts of CBA. The knowledge gained in the lecture will be assessed in a Mid-term exam. Students then apply the CBA approaches by writing a seminar paper based on literature and real-world case studies (second half of the semester).

The course introduces students to policies for supporting economic growth, sectoral transformation and economic integration, which are presented as the main areas of development policy and which are analysed from a theoretical as well as from an empirical perspective. The lecture starts with some basic definitions and makes the students familiar with a number of indicators that are brought into play to describe developing countries’ economic and social realities and to derive development policy goals. This section puts particular emphasis on discussing the international comparability of popular development indicators, such as per capita income or the Gini coefficient. The second chapter uses a theory-based approach to describe the preconditions and mechanisms suspect to be responsible for the empirical fact that some developing countries are stuck in poverty while others dynamically grow. Functional and personal income distribution as well as poverty and their interplay with economic growth is studied in chapter 3. We investigate whether growth is good for distribution and/or for the poor, and how policies directed towards reducing income inequality may affect economic growth. Chapter 4 focusses on developing countries’ development strategies, distinguishes between balanced and unbalanced approaches to sectoral transformation and discusses strategic options such as globalisation, protectionism and regional economic integration as well as different types of domestic reform. The instruments available to donor countries to support the socio-economic progress made by developing countries are shortly presented and analysed in chapter 5. Chapter 6 takes stock and offers a brief evidence-based discussion, whether and to which extent the living conditions in developing countries have improved over last six decades.

Das Ziel der Lehrveranstaltung ist es, die Studierenden mit den analytischen Modellen zur Behandlung der bioökonomischen und epidemiologischen Probleme vertraut zu machen und eine selbständige Anwendung dieser Modelle für ökonomisch sinnvolle Entscheidungsfindung zu ermöglichen

Mathematical Bioeconomics and Epidemics (M.Sc.)

The lecture delves into the underlying principles of the economics of the natural resources. After gaining an overview of the taxonomy of the natural resources, the students will be made familiar with the basics of the optimal control theory. The lecture contemplates both normative and positive economics of the nonrenewable natural resources such as fossil fuels and non-fuel minerals and renewable natural resources such as fisheries and renewable energy sources. To illustrate the relevance of the individual lecture blocks for the planning and management in the context of the sustainable resource management and environmental policies, each lecture ends with a discussion of a pertinent case study.

Economics of Natural Resources (M.Sc.)

Vorlesung
1 SWS

SoSe, WiSe

Models of the Post-Keynesian Growth Theory (Harrod/Domar Model and Two-Gaps Model) and the neoclassical growth model are discussed in detail. In particular, the determinants “savings” and “population growth” are critically assessed as well as the interdependency of growth and capital imports and foreign trade, respectively. Another focus is set on the analysis of “technological progress” as growth determinant. Subsequent to the theoretical models, problem oriented topics are covered, concentrating on development financing, trade, financial crisis, human capital accumulation, HIV/AIDS and technological progress in developing countries.
