Mathias has a PhD in Political Economy (University of Freiburg, Germany) and a Diploma in Economics (University of Konstanz, Germany). In his PhD thesis, published in 2009 with Palgrave Macmillan, he explores the determinants of forced migration and its political implications from an economic perspective. He describes the distribution of burdens from forced migration across countries, and analyzes the strategic interaction of national refugee policies to control refugee flows.
Prior to joining IMI in April 2010, he held a lecturer position at the University of Freiburg (Centre for Renewable Energy) and a position as economic advisor with GTZ (the German Development Cooperation Agency).
