Best Paper Prize awarded to Sabine Stillger

CDSE doctoral candidate Sabine Stillger received the Best Paper Prize by the 22nd Annual GEP/CEPR Postgraduate Conference for her paper “Firm Heterogeneity, International Trade and Emissions: Evidence from German Manufacturing Firms”.

The paper studies the role of firm heterogeneity in sourcing decisions and emission intensity for carbon leakage in intermediate inputs. Models ignoring firm heterogeneity underestimate leakage and welfare losses. Carbon border adjustments are one way to mitigate leakage.
