Members of the PhD IDS Participated Successfully in the Class ‘Microeconomics of Competitiveness’

It was the first time that the innovative course, developed by the Harvard Business School, was launched by the working group for Urban and Regional Economy at the Geographical Institute of the Ruhr-University Bochum. An interdisciplinary group of students discussed case studies on competiveness of several countries and regions, companies and their regional concentration in so-called clusters. Mohamed Dawude Temory, Lesley Hope and Anne Siebert gave a presentation on the case of ‘The Afghan Carpet Cluster’ and will submit their working paper soon.
