Economic Growth and Human Development
This working group focuses on the interplay of global commons for sustainable development and human well-being, particularly with respect to economic growth, migration and population. Examples of our research range from empirical analyses of temperature and climate on GDP or migration to theoretical works on the role of environment for endogenous economic growth, agglomeration and demographic dynamics. We aim to contribute to a better understanding about how global commons – and their proper management – affect economic and human development and vice versa.
