In this summer semester, I will give a seminar on the “Climate Change and Conflict” for Bachelor students. It will be an intensive seminar where we explore the question whether there is robust empirical evidence for a link between climate change and conflict on the basis of a number of selected articles. You will present one of these articles to the group and work through the other articles by completing small assignments. The seminar will (hopefully) take place on July 17, and the organizational information can be found on the Moodle page of the course.
Previously, I have taught the following courses at the AWI, Heidelberg University:
• Natural Resource Economics (Master). WS 16/17, 17/18 and 18/19.
• Economics of Common Pool Resources (Bachelor). SS 2017 and 2018
I’m happy to supervise good Bachelor or Master projects. Before registering the project, I ask you to produce a project plan. Here are the guidelines that I use for the eventual grading. Here is a link to a LaTeX template(thanks to Zeno Enders).
Other courses in environmental and resource economics
If you want to learn more, I encourage you to check out the courses that Timo Goeschl offers here in Heidelberg and the courses that Ulrich Wagner offers at the Uni Mannheim [link]. Note that there is a "Kooperationsvertrag" between Mannheim and Heidelberg so that your credits in environmental economics from the respective other university are accepted at your home university.
