Welcome to the Department of Development Economics, Migration and Agricultural Policy (DEMAP)

International profile of the department

The Department has its major focus on the determinants of national and subnational development, labour mobility, human migration, remittances and rural development in Asian, East African, Latin American and East European countries.

The co-operation with institutional counterparts from Taiwan, Iran, Pakistan, India, Mexico, Poland, Spain, as well as Italy indicates a vital international network for scientific knowledge exchange in addition to guest lectures and joint research projects. Thus a significant contribution has been made to the development of the department's international profile over the last decade.
