Bevölkerungsökonomik / Population Economics (171516)

Do. 18:15 - 19:45 in VII-005Pikos, Weisser

Inhalt:

Die Veranstaltung behandelt ausgewählte Themen mit Demografiebezug. Der wesentliche Fokus liegt hierbei auf einer ökonomischen Analyse der Auswirkungen des »Demografischen Wandels«, der sich in erheblichem Maße in einer veränderten Altersstruktur der Bevölkerung und sich wandelnden familiären Entscheidungsprozessen widerspiegelt. In vielen industrialisierten Ländern (so auch in Deutschland) beobachten wir in den letzten Jahrzehnten das Phänomen, dass die Erwerbsbeteiligung der Frauen relativ niedrig ist, zugleich aber auch wenige Kinder geboren werden. Im Rahmen der Veranstaltung wird die Wirksamkeit familienpolitischer Maßnahmen (z.B. Elternzeit, Erziehungsgeld oder Kinderbetreuungseinrichtungen) hinsichtlich einer Steigerung der Erwerbsbeteiligung von Frauen oder der Fertilität diskutiert. Beide Aspekte spielen wiederum eine wesentliche Rolle vor dem Hintergrund einer alternden Gesellschaft, da sie wichtige Determinanten für die Funktionsfähigkeit sozialer Sicherungssysteme darstellen. Neben den Implikationen einer alternden Gesellschaft für das Renten- und Krankenversicherungssystem sollen ebenfalls die Effekte auf dem Arbeitsmarkt (z.B. Beschäftigungschancen im Alter) sowie Aspekte der politischen Ökonomie diskutiert werden. Ziel der Veranstaltung ist es, den Studierenden ein ökonomisch fundiertes Bild des Phänomens »Demografischer Wandel« zu liefern und aktuelle Forschungserkenntnisse zu vermitteln.

Labour and Development (171552 / 172852)

Do. 09:15 - 10:45 in II-013Leckcivilize

Inhalt:

Labour markets in Developing countriesThis course aims to introduce the students to theoretical models and empirical researches on labour market in developing countries ranging from middle-income countries mostly in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America to low-income countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. It will discuss the similarities and differences in the frameworks used to analyse labour markets between developed and developing economies. Some of these topics (such as family enterprises, surplus labour, geographical mobility, health/nutrition effects on productivity) receive greater attention in developing economies context due to their greater role on the labour market outcomes. Others might have been considered extensively for both developing and developed economies but with some different approaches and results, for example, determinants of schooling and labour market returns to human capital.
