Behavioural economist Dr. Katrin Schmelz of the University of Konstanz and her Santa Fe Institute colleague Prof. Dr. Samuel Bowles show that enforcing SARS-CoV-2 vaccination should be avoided: mandates would undermine intrinsic motivation to vaccinate in many people, and bear high social and political costs.
The subjects “Political Sciences” and “Public Administration” at the University of Konstanz continue to hold top positions in the global university ranking. For the first time, the University of Konstanz was evaluated in the field of “Law” as one of eight German universities in the current ranking.
In their new “Inequality Barometer”, Konstanz researchers demonstrate: The German population often assesses the level of inequality incorrectly, underestimating wealth inequality in particular. This also has political consequences.
