Chair of Economic Policy
Welcome to our website!
The Chair of Economic Policy analyzes effects of institutions and government intervention on incentives in markets and organizations. Based on a microeconomic perspective and methods from game theory and experimental economics, we are interested in strategic and distributional consequences of governance problems. Current research projects include studies on the economics of conflict, on taxation and redistribution, and on the provision of public goods.
