The Professorship of Environmental Policy and Economics (PEPE) is part of the Institute for Environmental Decisions (IED) and the Department of Environmental Systems Science (D-USYS)

The Professorship integrates economics, political science, and law in the analysis of environmental policy, environmental governance, and environmental decisions. Research issues include the policy and economics of ecosystem services, and the role of networks, information, and preferences in policy making and for commons management. Our geographic focus ranges from Switzerland and other industrialized countries to developing countries such as Brazil, Ethiopia, India, and Indonesia.

Teaching at PEPE focuses on the role of environmental, resource and behavioral economics, political science and law for understanding human-environment systems.
