Chair of Development Economics (Prof. Fuchs)
The Chair of Development Economics investigates policy-relevant issues in development economics from a predominantly political-economy perspective and with quantitative methods. We deal with questions of international development, trade and investment policy. The effectiveness of international development cooperation projects and government-led interventions and policies are a central object of investigation. We also analyze the economics of natural disasters, conflicts, migration, and international organizations. Regional foci of our research are Asia (especially China) and Latin America. Our teaching focuses on development economics from a macroeconomic and political-economy perspective as well as on development policy. Here we offer a comprehensive range of courses at Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. level. The chair holder is Prof. Dr. Andreas Fuchs, Director of the Centre for Modern East Asian Studies (CeMEAS) and the Ibero-America Institute for Economic Research at the University of Göttingen.
