STARS @UNIPD 2021 Riccardo Domenico Saulle
Riccardo Domenico Saulle from the Department of Economics and Management of the University of Padova was awarded a 2-year STARS Grant 2021 for his project: Global Warming and Economic Design: Theory and Applications.
Countries coordination plays a fundamental role in the stability of international environmental agreements and such a coordination is mediated by several democratic institutions. The project studies a novel framework to implement effective international environmental agreements where group-based incentives are designed through the allocation of rights within institutions.
Thanks to the STARS Grant, Riccardo will hire a one-year postdoctoral fellow and run a lab experiment. He will also organise a Workshop on Economic Design and International Environmental Agreements.
