Economics, in particular Microeconomics

Research in the department of economics, in particular microeconomics, focuses on topics in labour, family & gender economics. It aims at understanding how social norms affect economic behaviour and shape socioeconomic inequalities, in particular with respect to gender. To gain insights that can inform policy, we draw on a wide range of tools from behavioural economics and applied microeconometrics, using experimental as well as survey and administrative data.
