Welcome to the Empirical Institutional Economics Research Group
Junior Prof. Dr. Seo-Young Cho
The research focus of our group includes various topics of applied and institutional economics. In particular, we investigate the topics of the economics of gender and crime, especially gender equality in education and employment, female migration, gender-based violence, human trafficking, cybercrime, social capital, and globalization. We offer courses on empirical institutional economics, gender economics, and empirical methods, as well as seminars on critical and emerging topics in applied economics, at the bachelor and master levels.
