Education at unit of Economic History

Economic history concerns the evolution of economic phenomena in historical perspective in Sweden and in other parts of the world.

We deal with subsistence, economic growth and crises, trade, natural resources, economic policy and distribution in a long-term perspective. Economic history provides a wide range of methodology and theoretical analytical tools for the understanding of long-term societal change. You will not only gain an understanding for the limits of growth, but also for the role of social institutions and institutional change.
