Workshop The Impact of Conflict on Households: Pointers for Practitioners

This public event looks at how different types of conflict affect economic behaviors at the household level. The presenters, Tilman Brueck and Kati Schindler, will discuss the impacts of conflict through the use of household survey data collected from both Mozambique and Rwanda, where post-conflict environments impaired household boundaries, asset endowments, and the types of income-generating activities households engaged in. They will also offer a set of policy recommendations for decision-makers and practitioners.

Workshop The Economics of Maritime Piracy

Recently, maritime piracy has become an important international security issue and a great risk to the safe and cheap conduct of international trade. Governments discuss the needs and possibilities to combat this new kind of piracy, while ship-owners calculate alternative routes for commercial shipping. In addition, piracy has economic consequences for the home countries. Today, piracy occurs in particular off the Somali Coast, as well as in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Maritime piracy has different dimensions: legal issues, political coordination, as well as economic motives and consequences. This workshop will focus on the economics of piracy, but relevant legal, political, anthropological, psychological, medical or historical issues may also be addressed.

Workshop Third Workshop of the Network for the Economic Analysis of Terrorism (NEAT)
“Government Policies in the Fight against Terrorism: Costs and Benefits”

NEAT connects a group of leading European economists working on terrorism and insecurity. The network advances our understanding of the links between security and economics and assists in analyzing the costs and benefits of European security policies.  The network’s third workshop will include discussions of the economic aspects of both the government use of privately-collected data (e.g. passenger name records) and CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear) terrorist threats.

To register, please send an email with your name, job title, institutional affiliation, email address, and telephone number to John Holmes. Registration will close on Tuesday, 7 April.

Veranstaltung Innovation in der Krise kommunizieren
Die Fachgruppe Wissenschaft, Forschung und Innovation des Bundesverbandes deutscher Pressesprecher lädt ins DIW Berlin.

Die Finanzkrise ist in der Realwirtschaft massiv angekommen. Nach der Krise wird die Welt anders aussehen. Innovationsfähigkeit ist eine Schlüsselkomponente für eine erfolgreiche Bewältigung der Herausforderungen. Doch mit der Innovationsfähigkeit Deutschlands steht es nicht zum Besten. Wie also können die Innovationspotentiale Deutschlands erschlossen werden? Und wie sollte Innovation der Krise kommuniziert werden?

Seit 2005 veröffentlicht das DIW mit dem Innovationsindikator eine breit angelegte Untersuchung über die Innovationsfähigkeit führender Industrieländer: Deutschland werden darin große Schwächen vor allem in der Bildung und in der Innovationskultur bescheinigt. Projektleiterin Dr. Heike Belitz stellt die Ergebnisse vor.
