Research conducted in this center lays the basis for our area studies on East Asia and Europe. The center was launched by Professor Beckmann, Professor Kruse-Becher and Professor Schmerer in 2021 as a joint platform for their cooperations in studies on applied statistics and data analysis. Joscha Beckmann and Robinson Kruse-Becher are both experts in econometrics and statistical methods. Their focus is on macroeconometric time series analysis. Hans-Jörg Schmerer is an expert for panel data analysis and international trade.

The main objective of this center is the development of methodological skills that can be applied globally comprising empirical methods for e.g. causal identification, dynamic modelling and forecasting in an international context:

  • Statistical inference and data limitations
  • Quantitative models of International Economics
  • Time-series econometrics

Global Economic Policy Group Meeting 2022: Macroeconomic Politics, Integration and Trade

With great success, the first Global Economic Policy Group Meeting since the start of the Covid-19-pandemic was held. The event was jointly organized by the University of Westminster in London and the FernUniveristät in Hagen and took place at the regional campus of the FernUniversität in Berlin. On the 27th and 28th of June, fifteen speakers from eight different universities presented their research on topics related to macroeconomic politics, globalization, integration and trade (the program can be found here). During the 2-day-workshop, Plutarchos Sakellaris (Athens University of Economics and Business) and Christoph Görtz (University of Birmingham) delivered the two keynotes. Organizers Karen Jackson (University of Westminster) and Hans-Jörg Schmerer (FernUniversität in Hagen) announced that the 2023 edition of the workshop will take place in London. We are looking forward to meeting everyone again next year!
