Course Description: 

During the seminar, participants will discuss a broad range of topics. A first set of topics address questions related to spatial and public economics (Prof. Wrede). A second
set relates to various examples of experimental field research in public economics (Prof. Rincke). Finally, the seminar also deals with taxation and public economics (Prof. Büttner). The list of topics below provides more details, including references and brief comments on the research questions covered in the respective literature.

The seminar has two consecutive parts. In the first part, students write a thesis (15 pages) under the guidance of their advisor. In an introductory session, students learn
about the principles of scientific work and the scope of analysis that is expected. The thesis elaborates on the literature (see the list of topics for the main article(s) to be
covered). Students are expected to search for additional literature and then work independently on their topic. Advisors provide close guidance during this process. The
second part consists of a two-day seminar (December 6th/7th) of students’ presentations. Before preparing their presentations, supervisors will provide students
with detailed feedback on their thesis. During the seminar students present their thesis.Each presenter has 25 minutes for her/his presentation, followed by 25 minutes
of discussion.

Students who want to participate should express their interest by submitting a participation form (see webpage of Prof. Rincke’s chair) to amanda.tuset.cueva@fau.de until July 23rd, 2018. Please note that the maximum number of participants is 10 students.
