Roland Iwan Luttens
Roland Iwan Luttens teaches Economic Thought in a Historical Perspective, the economics part of the theme course Introduction to Social Policy and Fundamentals of Microeconomics at Amsterdam University College. He is also a tutor. He holds a MSc in economics from the K.U.Leuven and a PhD in economics from Ghent University. His doctoral dissertation studied the introduction of liberal-egalitarian principles of justice in the axiomatic design of redistribution mechanisms. Before joining AUC, he worked six years as a post-doctoral researcher for the Fund for Scientific Research - Flanders (FWO). During that period, he long-term visited Ecole Polytechnique (Paris), the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (Bergen) and VU University Amsterdam. His current research tackles the question "who gets what and why?" in various economic settings. Among other things, he studies union-firm wage bargaining under non-binding contracts, equilibrium allocations in jungle economies where property rights are absent and the adjudication of conflicting claims in bankruptcy situations. He is an affiliated researcher of the Choice Lab (NHH).
