    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Seeking asylum in Germany: Does human and social capital determine the outcome of asylum procedures?

    The outcome of asylum procedure is vital for staying perspectives of refuges and their well-being, as well as their following economic and social integration in the host society. In principal, persecution and other forms of violation of human rights should solely determine the outcome of asylum procedures according to the Geneva convention and the asylum legislation in Europe. However, some previous (rather qualitative) evidence suggests that the asylum procedure outcome may be subject to socio-economic selectivity. If this is true, unequal chances for recognition of asylum application may contribute to the cumulative (dis-)advantages over the life course.
    Using a recent longitudinal household data, the IAB-BAMF-SOEP-Survey of Refugees in Germany, we investigate whether and how human capital characteristics of refugees and their command about social resources such as networks affect the probability of recognition of the asylum application. Our findings evidence that higher socio-economic status of refugees and support by social networks affect the outcomes asylum procedures positively. Throughout the analysis we control for variables which capture the violation of human rights and other forms of violence, changes in asylum policies and country-of-origin-specific fixed effects. Our findings turn out to be robust to different specifications. Altogether, we conclude that the overarching aim of the asylum process, granting asylum to those who are in need of protection for reasons of violence and persecution seems to be diluted by social and economic factors, which are relevant for the outcomes and the length of asylum processes as well. As Germany has emerged as the dominant destination of asylum-seekers in the OECD, the study is in our view of general interest for an understanding of the forces which drive asylum procedures in developed countries.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Teacher incentives and grade retention

    This paper provides a simple framework to test whether teachers strategically retain students in the first grade of primary school in order to minimize the number of students in their class for grades 2-4. I build a model in which classes are subject to a class size cap and teachers can choose to retain students if their performance falls below an academic threshold. The key prediction, borne out in administrative data for the German state Sachsen, is that grade retention rates increase monotonically with class size but drop sharply in the vicinity of the class-size cap because teachers expect that classes might be split if class size exceeds the class size cap in the next grade.

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting China's economic policy future: state capitalism or strengthened market economy?

    The DIW Berlin and the OECD Berlin Centre cordially invite you to the Berlin Lunchtime Meeting.

    In China the strengthening of market mechanisms hoped for by western businesses is making only slow progress. Instead the state and the Communist Party are expanding their influence in the economy. This has consequences for China's economic policy. In the past decades this has led to growing overcapacities and indebtedness. Now China is aiming at global technological leadership. Is this approach a threat to the liberal order of the global economy?

    Dr. Max J. Zenglein, Senior Economist at MERICS, is working on sector-specific and macro-economic aspects of economic development in China, German-Chinese economic relations as well as the labour market and employment in China. Before joining MERICS Dr. Zenglein worked as an analyst at the German Chamber of Commerce (AHK) Greater China in Shenzhen, and later in Beijing. He finalised his university studies at the University of New York at Buffalo, the University of Economics and Law in Berlin, the University of Hong Kong and the University of Kassel with a doctorate in political economy focusing on China.

    Margit Molnar, Ph.D., is Senior Economist at the OECD’s Economics Department. She heads the China Desk of the Country Studies division in the Economics Department.

    Prof. Marcel Fratzscher, Ph.D., is President of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at the Humboldt University Berlin, and Member of the Advisory Council of the Federal Ministry of Economics.

    The event language will be English.

    Wednesday, April 25, 2018 | 12:00 p.m. to 14:15 p.m.
    starting with a lunch snack at 12:00 p.m.

    The lecture starts at 13:00 p.m.

    We look forward to your participation, and request that you register at

    Veranstaltung The New Germans

    Who and what is Germany in 2018? Among the things the country is known for are its consensus-based politics, its conservative social values, its egalitarian social-market economy, its collaborative and incrementalist firms and, on the international stage, its economic assertiveness combined with military reticence. Now, as Angela Merkel's (probably) final term as chancellor gets going after an unprecedented five months of coalition talks, all of those familiar traits are under pressure or in flux. 

    The arrival of hundreds of thousands of immigrants is accelerating the transformation of a once comparatively homogeneous nation into an Einwanderungsland or "immigration country". Politics is more heated and more fragmented than before. Debates rage about meaning of Heimat, or homeland, about who belongs and who does not. New social divides are opening up. Germany's main industries, particularly the automotive sector, remain world-class but face an intense period of disruption. Meanwhile the refugee crisis and the recent elections of Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron all, in different ways, challenge Berlin's traditional foreign policy doctrines and demand more of the country on the world stage. 

    In a new Special Report for The Economist, Jeremy Cliffe documents "the new Germans", a nation more open, plural and fragmented than before. The changes roiling Europe's largest economy, he argues, will force it to question established habits. 

    Registration is required. Please send an email to: events@diw.de.
