Department of Economics

The Department of Economics is one of the strongest departments in economic research in Europe. In international rankings, the department has occupied top positions for several years. With our research, we provide impulses for central societal challenges - such as climate change, digitalization and social justice - and contribute to a sustainable and evidence-based economic policy. Our focus is on the education of young economists. In courses ranging from Bachelor's to PhD programs, students in Bonn learn at the highest scientific level and at the cutting edge of research. Our graduates find challenging and exciting jobs in politics, business, international organizations and associations, many of them in leadership positions.

Broad public support for reducing energy dependence on Russia

According to a representative survey for the briq policy monitor, more than two-thirds of the German population would support a halt to energy imports from Russia in order to increase pressure on the Russian government. A broad majority would also welcome additional measures to reduce energy dependence, including alternative energy sources and energy-saving. When it comes to helping the Ukrainian people, many of the respondents would support both aid and integration policies, including permanent residence and work permits for refugees. Germans are divided, however, on the question of further arms deliveries to Ukraine.
