Economic Colloquium - Presentation by Prof. Dr. Lutz Schneider

On May 21st Prof. Dr. Lutz Schneider will give a presentation at our faculty titled "Can the decline of traditional industrial sites explain people's election behaviour in German regions?".

Lutz Schneider is a Professor of Economics at the Coburg University of Applied Sciences and a Research Professor at the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research in Halle. His research interests are applied microeconomics, behavioural economics and political economy. In this contribution, he deals with the question whether a severe economic downturn in a region leads people to elect populist parties. This question is of current interest in particular for East Germany and regions beyond. Lutz Schneider is one of the few specialists on economic and social developments in East Germany with a background in economics and philosophy.
