53713-01 - Seminar: Environmental and Energy Economics 6 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Frank Christian Krysiak (frank.krysiak@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt The course will cover current topics in environmental and energy economics, ranging from water pollution, climate change, promotion of renewables to new designs for electricity markets.

Students will choose their individual topic from a supplied list and work individually on their seminar thesis. However, they will be required to connect their work to the general topical clusters of the seminar and to discuss the work of other students.

During the first weeks, some training on presentation skills and on providing constructive feedback will be given.
Lernziele You will acquire in-depth knowledge on the topic chosen for your seminar thesis. In addition, you will learn how to extract the main results from scientific studies, how to apply them to a particular question, how to compare and discuss different studies, and how to build your own argument on this basis. If you choose to do so, you can also learn how to (slightly) extend existing studies on your own.
Literatur Students will receive one literature reference for their topic as a starting point for their own literature search.
