Research Projects

The research projects undertaken by professor Dembinski have three common features:

  • A research method based on the systemic analysis involving the building of the study subject according to the question raised
  • An investigation at a mesoeconomic level, which could be situated between macroeconomics and business administration
  • an interdisciplinary dimension


Recent research projects are the following:
