The students will gain insight in problems of economic justice and collective decision making.
This course studies politics (the theory of the state, voting rules, voting behaviour, party politics, etc.) using the methodology of microeconomics, i.e., taking as a starting point utility maximizing agents. Furthermore, methods to evaluate market outcomes and political outcomes on the basis of (distributive) justice will be considered.
Reader and literature will be announced on EleUM.
The level of this course is relatively high and preferably third year students should register. Knowledge and understanding of microeconomics [level comparable to "Microeconomics" ] and quantitative methods [level comparable to "Quantitative Methods III" ] is required. Exchange students need to follow a Bachelor in economics. Exchange students should have a good background in microeconomics to benefit optimally from the course.
