Am Dienstag, 23.02.2016, hält Miriam Frey (Regensburg) einen Vortrag in der Seminarreihe des Arbeitsbereichs Ökonomie am  Institut für Ost- und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS) zum Thema: "Environmental Awareness and the Persistence of History: Evidence from Ukraine".

Abstract des Vortrags

Determinants of residential energy and resource use such as socio-economic factors, dwelling characteristics and weather conditions are widely studied in the literature. However, cultural factors and the role of people’s attitudes towards the environment in household‘s energy demand are less apparent and are difficult to capture. In this paper, we study the residential energy consumption in Ukraine to analyze whether regional variation in environmental awareness is due to historically rooted cultural differences.
