The interdisciplinary dialogue is a new IRI THESys workshop series on structured, out-of-the-box thinking circling key terms of academic discussion from different perspectives.

Economic analysis uses a wide range of methods for the study of land use decision making. This interdisciplinary dialogue explores two different economic approaches to land use and land use conflict. On the one hand, Wibke Crewett and Sarah Keuthmann explore the example of bioeconomy feedstock production and short rotation coppices. They thereby discuss land use change from an institutional economics perspective, which emphasises the role of institutional arrangements by using contextual in-depth studies. Jesko Hirschfeld (IÖW) and Julian Sagebiel (IÖW) complement this perspective on land use change and present a conceptual framework for extended cost-benefit analyses and a discrete choice experiment on the economic valuation and monetarization of land management associated ecosystem services.
