Economics & the environment:
researching pathways into the future

The Resource Economics Group advances economic research on
sustainable development, in particular:

  • Institutional economics of climate change adaptation
  • Political games in climate change mitigation
  • Governance of path dependence in the energy transition
  • Archetype analysis as an approach to study social-
    ecological-technical systems

We have a strong theoretical background in environmental and resource economics, political economy and institutional economics. Our research employs and combines quantitative and qualitative methods -- game theory, simulation, and comparative case studies.
