Ulrich Koester researches and teaches at the Institute for Agricultural Economics at the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, Germany. He has been a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry for over 20 years. Moreover, he gained experience working with the International Food Policy Research Institute in Washington D.C. and with numerous international organizations, including the World Bank, FAO, the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Court of Auditors. His teaching experience is based on courses taught at more than ten universities in general economics and agricultural economics. Part I of the book lays the theoretical foundations for understanding price formation in product and factor markets. In addition to neoclassical theory, institutional economics is of particular importance. Part II presents and evaluates agricultural policy with special reference to the EU, whereby the evaluation framework goes beyond the usual welfare theory analysis. The book is also a valuable aid for students of economic policy, especially because of its detailed evaluation of individual agricultural market policy instruments. The book is aimed at students at universities, technical colleges as well as politicians interested in rational agricultural policy making.

For decades Germany has been one of the major host countries for international students, at the wake of the 21st century the vast majority comes from Asian countries. With increasing international competition the students, their countries of origin as well as Germany are confronted with specific challenges associated with sometimes conflicting plans, expectations, and apprehensions, amplified by uncertainties. While the students try to adapt to the conditions in Germany to make the best of their stay, their countries of origin ask whether the resources spent on the studies abroad of their nationals are well-invested, and how they might re-attract those who are graduates. As a partaker in the "global race for talents" Germany, finally, questions how it might retain those qualified in highly demanded subjects after their graduation. By contributing to answering these questions, this volume is relevant for all of these stakeholders.Beatrice Knerr is a professor at the University of Kassel (Germany) where she heads the Department of Development Economics, Migration and Agricultural Policy (DEMAP). She holds a PhD degree from Kiel University and received her habilitation from the University of Stuttgart/Hohenheim. Among her publications are ten monographs and edited and co-edited books, and around fifty articles and book chapters on labor migration and mobility. Among the co-authors are Zhao Xi, Tingting Ma, Rebecca Tlatlik, Sudeh Dehnavi, Robert Sibarani, Wildan Syafitri, Ranjita Nepal and Sadaf Mahmood who were all PhD students at DEMAP at the time of the survey activities. Most of them have graduated since then and have returned to their home countries, others have opted to stay in Germany or to move on to a third country.

Zum WerkPublished continuously since 1981 the German Textbook "Grundzüge der landwirtschaftlichen Marktlehre" (Principles of agricutural market analysis and policy) has become the standard textbook for students in agriculture and in particular in agricultural economics in Germany and other German speaking countries. This book entitled ‘Foundations of Agricultural Market Analysis and Agricultural Policy' is based on the fifth edition of the German textbook in 2016, though it includes various updates and extensions.Part One of this book, "Foundations of Agricultural Market Analysis," provides the basis for analyzing the specifics of the agricultural sector. These specifics limit the application of plain neoclassical economics, but including institutional and behavioral economics help to bridge the gap between theory and the real world.Part Two, "Agricultural Policy," reviews the role of agriculture in the achievement of specific agricultural policy objectives. Comparing free agricultural market developments and policy objectives confirms market failure. The existence of actual or perceived market failure explains the numerous policy instruments applied in the past and present in the agricultural policies of individual countries, as well as in the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU. The economic analysis presented in this book uses a general framework for policy evaluation that can be applied to any country. The second to last chapters focus on the EU, however, the EU experience can be of interest to other countries as well. The last chapter, Epilog, is very EU specific as it discusses the problem of the ongoing negotiations for the next seven years. Generally, the two parts of this book focus on the EU's Common Agricultural Policy, the experiences presented can serve as case studies for any non-EU country.Zur Neuauflage (fällt Bei Na Weg)Autor Ulrich Koester researches and teaches at the Institute for Agricultural Economics at the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, Germany.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel (Englisches Seminar), 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This work deals with concepts of ownership in terms of land in the novel 'A Thousand Acres' written by Jane Smiley. The novel was written in 1991 and was rewarded a Pulitzer Prize. Jane Smiley rewrote the Shakespearean play King Lear by narrating the story from the eldest daughter's point of view. However, A Thousand Acres is not only a rewriting of Shakespeare's work, it also comments on the social and agricultural circumstances in the United States of the 1960s and 70s, where the novel is set. Her critique in this novel points towards industrialised farming and the exploitation of land and its resources. The aim of the paper ist to find out how agriculture and farming are represented in 'A Thousand Acres'. How does Jane Smiley describe the results of industrialised farming? Is there any return? How do people cope with agribusiness and its consequences? What is the structure of the society that lives for agribusiness? In the course of answering these questions I will try to draw relating problems between Smiley's 'A Thousand Acres' and Shakespeare's 'King Lear' and will try to point out the differences between the novel and the play in matters pertaining to concepts of land-ownership.

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Nature Protection, Landscape Conservation, grade: 1,3, Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel (Institut für Natur- und Ressourcenschutz Abteilung Landschaftsökologie), course: Environmental Management, Umweltmanagement, language: English, abstract: The stock of the European brown hare (Lepus europaeus PALLAS, 1778) is declining since decades, in Germany as well as in other European countries.At the same time,the occurrence of European brown hares is a new phenomenon in urban areas. Hence,Lichtenberg, a city district of Berlin, the capital of Germany, even assumed a special responsibility for its new inhabitants. Whereas a method for the quantification of this common game species in agricultural areas already exists, a new quantification method for city habitats is required in order to overcome several limitations. The aim of this master thesis is to deliver a suitable quantification method for Lepus europaeus, which can be applied by nature conservation authorities in future. By means of a strong LED torchlight and a bike, 153.74 ha of green area, which is usually scattered between residential buildings, were investigated in the style of the previous 'spotlight taxation'. These investigated areas belong to five different tracks. Each track was investigated three times in the late evening hours in the spring period from 8th of March until the 25th of April 2011. Within this time 37 sightings of hares have been made. Summing up the five maximum values from each of the 3 countings, one could assume that at least 17 hares live within the illuminated area. Considering the territorial behaviour, even a minimum number of 19 hares is probable. If additionally only suitable tracks are taken into account, a density of 16.98 hares/100 ha can be calculated ¿ a surprisingly high value compared to the results of spotlight counting in surrounding federal states, where the agricultural landscape, and therefore the natural habitat of Lepus europaeus, is more prevalent. However, a direct comparison to the hare densities in the open landscape, which are obtained by means of different methods is incorrect. Nevertheless, if the proposed aspects for a future implementation will be taken into consideration in the long run, it is a realisable method for the quantification of urban hare populations. Moreover, the interested public can participate on this scientific approach as well. Then, cost reduction and the rising awareness for wild animals in the public are positive side-effects.
