Economics, Ethics and Law

Economics, Ethics and Law

The research group in Economics, Ethics and Law (EEL) does research on the behavior and misbehavior of individuals (managers, employees, investors) and organizations, and on responses to legal frameworks and other regulation.

The research group is interdisciplinary in that it comprises researchers from the diverse fields of economics, ethics and law. However, research in the group builds on shared methodologies in applying theoretical, experimental and empirical economic and legalistic tools. The group combines positive and normative approaches and analyses. Among the group’s current research themes are corruption, international tax avoidance, entrepreneurship, sustainability investing and whistleblowing.
