Seminario do Grupo Post-Growth Innovation Lab: Samer Abdelnour (Universidade de Edimburgo)

Abstract:
Samer Abdelnour will present a recently published paper suggesting that in contexts of violence methodological reflexivity alone is insufficient to prevent researchers from causing harms to vulnerable people and communities. Rather, researchers should embrace ‘political reflexivity’, which can equip researchers to better identify, understand and mitigate harms, and where possible, challenge structures that do the marginalizing. The paper draws on feminist standpoint epistemology and contributes to growing debates about decolonizing research methods.


Seminario do Grupo ECOSOT: Yuan Ju (Universidade de York)

Title: The English Housing Market Mechanism
Authors: Yuan Ju, Zaifu Yang, and Jingsheng Yu
Abstract: This paper introduces a model of typical English housing markets. In such markets, there are many first time buyers, movers, and sellers. Because of financial/locational constraints, most homeowners who wish to move are critically dependent on the sale of their current house. We formulate this problem as a multi-person game-theoretical problem and propose a novel allocation mechanism. We demonstrate that the mechanism always yields efficient assignment of houses, i.e., a core allocation, to market participants within existing constraints, and can improve welfare gains of trade considerably.


Seminario do Grupo de Empresa Internacional e Capital Intelectual: Nick Zubanov (Universidade de Constanza)

Anonymous and unannounced site inspections known as “Mystery Shopping” (MS) are common in multi-site service firms, but little is known about the strategic importance of this practice. We conceptualize MS as a tool firms use to implement the optimal allocation of site resources between sales- and service-related activities in the presence of cross-site reputation spillovers, which is to maximize sales while maintaining service standards. Consistent with this strategy, data from three retail chains reveal (i) low variation in MS scores, (ii) little correlation of MS scores with sales, and iii) high correlation of sites’ MS scores with the likelihood of their supervisors receiving incentive bonuses. These findings are robust to different estimation specifications and shed a new light on a ubiquitous yet little-studied management practice.

JRC B2 Seminar: 'EU 1.5° Lifestyles: Policies and tools for mainstreaming 1.5° Lifestyles' - Nadin Ozcelik

The IPCC concludes in their Special Report on Global Warming that limiting global temperature increase needs demand-side actions and lifestyle changes. Previous attempts to realise demand-side changes have been hampered by several factors: First, there is very limited quantitative data showing how much a proposed change in lifestyle would contribute to climate change mitigation. Thus, policy makers and citizens lack guidance to make informed choices. Second, there is still limited evidence of public acceptance of drastic changes. This has led to internationally uncoordinated policies and to policies that will very likely fall short on having sufficient impact. Third, policies have usually promoted changes of individual behaviour without addressing structural constraints or structural drivers of unsustainable lifestyles. This has led to policies that remain ineffective and frustrate citizens who wish to make positive lifestyle choices. We aim to address all three of the above issues, by connecting an analysis of individual lifestyle perspectives, on household level, with policies and socio-economic structures, on all levels from international to local. The analysis will be structured according to the emerging 1.5-degree lifestyles approach, which members of the consortium have helped to define. The advantage of a lifestyle-oriented approach is to link concrete transformations of lifestyle by individuals to transformations of the structural context by policies, economic, and societal institutions. This inclusive approach is original in terms of a research strategy. In practical terms, it is very promising as it offers concrete guidance and as it can be scaled to political, social, and economic capacities on regional to (supra-) national levels. We pursue our aims using quantitative and qualitative methods, country-level assessments and sector-based case studies, as well as innovative participatory formats and a broad range of communication methods.


Ciclo de Conferencias Científicas Aida Fernández Ríos - María Loureiro: “A cidadanía ante o cambio climático: aspectos socioeconómicos”

“A cidadanía ante o cambio climático: aspectos socioeconómicos”

O cambio climático é un dos fenómenos máis globais e preocupantes ós que se enfronta a cidadanía no século  XXI. Nesta presentación  analízase como os sentimentos cara o cambio climático se expresan e se transmiten a nivel mundial e xeran posibilidades de aplicacións de políticas de mitigación e adaptación nos distintos continentes. En liñas xerais, cada vez hai máis conciencia a nivel mundial sobre a aparición do cambio climático e as súas consecuencias económicas e sociais; isto ocorre de maneira especial en países que recentemente experimentaron acontecemientos extremos. Para realizar esta análise empregamos unha base de datos que contén máis de 100 millóns de rexistros de conversacións en Twitter a nivel mundial desde o ano 2019 ata a actualidade.
Por proximidade, centrámonos no caso europeo e analizaremos de forma causal, con aplicacións empíricas microeconométricas, cómo a transición enerxética e as súas consecuencias nos prezos da enerxía afectan á percepción sobre a necesidade da política climática.
