Research questions

In his research, Colin von Negenborn combines microeconomic theory and practical philosophy, particularly ethics. In doing so, he applies the tools of economics - especially game theory and mechanism design - to questions of analytical philosophy and environmental ethics.
Thus, he addresses the following questions, among others:

  • How can efficiency and equity criteria be reconciled when scarce goods are to be distributed?
  • How can voting procedures and decision-making processes be designed to be "fair"?
  • Which actors, which goods must be taken into account in the context of the oceans?
