Anforderungen und Unterstützung
Zielsetzung Through their participation in the seminar, students expand their abilities to interpret and discuss topics in public economics based on current academic literature. Students write a term paper on different topics and present their work in a final block seminar which also includes group discussion. In their term paper, students have to show that they are able to understand a scientific paper in terms of its core messages and its methodology (theoretical and/or empirical). It is expected that they can summarize these aspects in their own words in a clear and concise manner. Moreover, students have to be able to embed the scientific paper in a broader context and to critically discuss the paper.
