Our research focuses on the macroeconomic consequences of globalization, with a particular emphasis on the role of labor market imperfections in open economies.
While the research is mainly theoretically oriented, it is our aim to derive empirically testable hypotheses as well as clear recommendations for policy makers on how to mitigate the (possibly) negative effects of globalization on employment and income distribution.
