PhD students

Working with PhD students on their projects has been a source of great satisfaction and inspiration to me. Each project is different. And because the students come from all over the world, the projects take me all over the world, too. It is in conversation with the PhD students that I have developed most of my ideas. Most of my PhD students continue in the academia. Six of them have made it to full professor. Currently I am supervising 14 PhD projects.

My field of study is pluralist economics, in particular development economics, and social economic issues. I am Professor of Pluralist Development Economics at the International Institute of Social Studies, of Erasmus University Rotterdam. I have edited a book and a handbook on economics and ethics, a book on the feminist economic of trade, and a book on social capital. I am currently writing an introductory economic textbook that is both pluralist and using global context, titled ‘Economics after the Crisis’ (Routledge). My recent research includes studies on bank culture and gender biases in finance, and work in behavioural economics on beliefs and on nudging.

My PhD dissertation (1999) was titled ‘Caring for Economics – an Aristotelian Perspective’. It is still available as The Values of Economics – and Aristotelian Perspective (2001) from Routledge.

Edgar Karssing PhD graduates

Integrity in professional practice. Integrity is important in our modern way of life. Therefore we need a clear understanding of the meaning and importance of integrity in daily professional practice. Otherwise, we are at risk that important integrity topics will be insufficiently addressed or will be approached in the wrong way. This study answers the question: what is, from a normative perspective, integrity in modern professional practice?

Paul Teule Current students

Paul Teule studied economics and philosophy at the University of Amsterdam. He currently lectures European political economy in the European Studies program at the University of Amsterdam.Teule’s PhD dissertation focuses on alternative measures of economic progress. There is quite a societal momentum to move ‘beyond’ Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as main economic measure, but for all sorts of reasons alternative/complementary indicators don’t seem to reach the most important institutions, decision makers and media. The dissertation will assess the conceptual and institutional barriers they face.
