The Political Economy of African Development. Ethnicity, Nation, and History

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This proposal aims to measure, document, and understand the historical origins of contemporary African inequality that has a strong ethnic component. The focus is on the interplay of the nation and the ethnicity that co-evolve, sometimes violently and sometimes peacefully across the continent. The proposal consists of four closely related projects. The first project develops a large database portraying the evolution of inequality and intergenerational mobility in education covering the full post-independence period using census data from many countries. Decomposing inequality and mobility in education into a between-ethnicity and a within-ethnicity component, it provides an autopsy of the cross-country, cross-region, and dynamic patterns. Then it examines the mechanisms linking inequality with well-being, employing a plethora of geo-referenced micro data. The second project extends widely-used anthropological maps and cross-cultural data on pre-colonial Africa to examine the legacy of deeply-rooted ethnic-specific institutional and economic traits on development. The project aims exploring the key mechanisms and examining exactly which aspects of statehood (courts, land rights, bureaucracy) matter for development. The third project assesses the impact of colonial “divide-and-rule” strategies and ethnic-based favouritism/discrimination on contemporary African political economy. To this end it compiles an original database of ethnic power relations during colonization and then examines whether ethnic political power and inequality post-independence is related to the differential treatment of ethnicities from the colonial administration. The fourth project assesses the long-run development impact of colonial concessions to private corporations and their main features (e.g., forced labour, violence, method of extraction), compiling a pan-African dataset covering all concessions and applying state-of-the-art econometric techniques to establish causal relationships.

The economic integration of expellees and their effects on the West Germany economy, 1945-70

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The displacement of Germans from Eastern Europe during and after World War II is one of the largest forced population movements in history. At least 12 million Germans fled or were expelled, most of them from the eastern territories of pre-war Germany. The enormous inflow of expellees (Heimatvertriebene) caused a drastic increase in the population of West Germany. By September 1950, every sixth West German resident was an expellee.Despite the historical significance of the displacement, only very few studies have so far provided econometric evidence on the economic effects of the expellees or on their economic integration in West Germany. This is surprising since, in contrast to most other episodes of forced migration, there is no lack of source data on the expellee inflow. Moreover, the specific historical circumstances under which the flight and expulsions occurred tend to simplify empirical analyses of the expellee inflow. In particular, expellees were not selected on the basis of their skills or labor market prospects. They were also very unevenly distributed across West German regions, mostly for reasons beyond their own control. The specific historical setting, therefore, allows researchers to abstract from many confounding factors that usually complicate the empirical analysis of immigration. Consequently, the displacement is not only of great historical interest but also offers an interesting setting to shed light on many fundamental questions in migration research.Against this background, the aim of this project is twofold. In a first step, the project will compile a comprehensive electronic database on the demographic characteristics and socio-economic situation of expellees in West Germany between 1945 and 1970. This database will be made available to both the scientific community and the interested public. The database will contain regional data from the West German population and occupation censuses of 1946, 1950, 1961 and 1970 and will complement the census data with a broad range of statistics from other available sources. In a second step, the project will use selected data of the new database, and exploit the specific characteristics of the immigration episode, to shed light on three unexplored questions on the expellee inflow. First, the project will analyze and quantify the medium- to long-run effects of the expellee inflow on the sectoral employment structure of West German regions. Second, the project will analyze and quantify factors that potentially accelerated or delayed the integration of expellees in the West German economy, such as differences in the economic structures of host regions or in the socio-economic characteristics of expellees. Third, the project will analyze and quantify the dynamic labor market effects of the expellee inflow.

The Political Economy of Power Relations

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Political economists want to understand conflict, electoral competition, special interest politics, regimes and institutional choices, and in all these subfields the term power appears frequently: power of countries, power of ethnic groups, power of interest groups, power of parties, power of the bureaucracy. Power is multidimensional and endogenous, and hence the standard theoretical and empirical analysis that takes a unified notion of power as an independent variable has led to wrong directions. By acknowledging that power is multidimensional and endogenous, and thereby studying the endogenous interactions between the different types of power, we can further significantly the frontier of political economy. In particular, I am going to show, theoretically and empirically, that all kinds of conflict, from civil war to interstate war and even class conflict, depend on the “mismatch” between the relative power of the key players on different dimensions, for example military and political power. An important byproduct of the mismatch theory is for the interpretation of the history of conflict after 1950: I claim that it is Bretton Woods that created the ground for a significant discontinuity, cutting down the incentives to interstate wars but increasing the incentives to start civil wars. Finally, the general idea that the dynamics of one type of power can depend significantly on relative power in other spheres will be applied also to the relationship between political power and the power of bureaucracies. The empirical part of the project will involve new measurements of power and will benefit from collection of data on political texts, policy platform texts, legal texts and economic strength of ethnic groups over time and cross-countries.

Realising Eurasia: Civilisation and Moral Economy in the 21st Century

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'In an age of unprecedented globalisation apparently conducive to homogenisation, the laws of economics are inflected not only by localised cultural variation (the familiar argument of the anthropologist) but also by broader traditions for which the most appropriate term (in spite of many difficulties) remains “civilisational”. REALEURASIA is a multidisciplinary comparative project which draws on classical work in several branches of anthropology and sociology to analyse the civilisational diversity and unity of Eurasia in the early 21st century. The research team will draw together the large literatures on moral economy (Thompson) and Wirtschaftsethik (Weber) and apply these concepts at multiple levels within the civilisational frame. The focus will be on the five “world religions” identified by Max Weber a century ago. Ethnographic work will initially be based in a renowned centre of the civilisation, in order to assess the ways in which this heritage is invoked in contemporary processes of identity construction and political legitimation in large, multi-ethnic states. Each fieldworker will then move to a second urban site not directly affected by the civilisational centre to uncover what is much less evident: the extent to which the civilisational economic ethic determines behaviour today. In towns selected to ensure structural comparability, researchers will investigate a spectrum of family-controlled firms and the domestic group per se. It is hypothesised that, civilisational pluralism notwithstanding, the long-term evolution of Eurasia has established a deep unity across the landmass, with far-reaching social and geopolitical implications.'

BIOSKOH’s Innovation Stepping Stones for a novel European Second Generation BioEconomy

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The BIOSKOH project will pave the way for a Second Generation European Circular Bioeconomy by showcasing how a number Innovation Stepping Stones can realise a breakthrough in techno-economic viability of lignocellulosic biorefineries. It will do so through a two stage investment process and development path to realise the largest (110 kton) second generation (2G) biorefinery in Europe. It starts from a brownfield industrial site in the eastern part of the Slovak Republic to realise the 1st stage Flagship plant to produce 55 kton of cellulosic ethanol per year for EU bio-fuel mandates. Partners include the full value chain starting from land owners and feedstock producers, supply chain experts and an agronomical research partner to set-up a new biomass value chain exploiting large amounts of currently unused crop residues (kton/year), and developing newly grown dedicated crops on marginal land (total circa 320 kton/year), as such revitalising the regional economy. Technology providers (Biochemtex, Novozymes and Lesaffre) developed, tested and demonstrated in the only available semi-industrial scale 2G biorefinery research plant (Crescentino), an innovative integrated pre-treatment, hydrolyses and fermentation package, with higher yield and lower CAPEX which will now be upscaled to the 1st of a kind commercial scale Flagship, to be built by Energochemica. Aim is to showcase techno-economic viability based on a sound business plan and 4 stepping stones (yield, biomass cost, brownfield and industrial symbiosis). Dedicated innovation actions by expert partners include assessing increased cascading potential through lignin valorisation and 2G bio-chemicals, LCA, Socio-economic impact analyses, business plan for a 2nd investment round, exploitation, dissemination and replication actions to various bio-economy clusters in Europe, thus giving both a short term and a long term contribution to the European Industrial Renaissance and bio-economy.
