Head of Chair
Unemployment is persistently high in many European countries. It is frequently attributed to ´functional deficiencies of labour markets´, even though it is to a large extent caused by shifts in demand and supply in increasingly globalized goods markets and financial markets. The PhD programme Globalization and Employment -run jointly by the Universities of Oldenburg and Hohenheim (Stuttgart) and the Protestant Churches' Study Fund (Evangelisches Studienwerk) from 1998 until 2013 - was therefore centered on research that deals with the employment effects of structural change and macroeconomic developments, such as new technologies, processes of internationalization and system transformation, endogenous finance constraints and various strategies of fiscal and monetary policy.
Work and supervision in the former programme on Globalization and Employment is now integrated in the PhD study programme TELIS. For further information please contact Prof. Dr. Trautwein (email@example.com).
