Abstract

In the present dissertation, an ex-post impact assessment of the CAP is conducted in the three East German Federal States of Brandenburg, Saxony, and Saxony-Anhalt. The analysis is based on regional data for 69 counties observed between 1997 and 2007. The main objective of the study is twofold: First, it is aimed to assess the impact of the whole portfolio of CAP measures on labor demand in East German agriculture with an additional focus on the decoupling of pillar I payments. Second, the impact of the CAP’s first pillar on heterogeneous farm structures is due to be analyzed. Given the fact that empirically based insights on these issues are limited, this research aims at filling this gap. -- In der vorliegenden Dissertation wird eine ex-post Wirkungsanalyse der GAP basierend auf Regionaldaten für 69 Kreise zwischen 1997 und 2007 in den drei Ostdeutschen Bundesländern Brandenburg, Sachsen und Sachsen-Anhalt durchgeführt. Die Arbeit verfolgt dabei zwei Hauptziele: Erstens sollen die Effekte des gesamten Portfolios an GAP Maßnahmen auf die Arbeitsnachfrage in der Ostdeutschen Landwirtschaft untersucht werden. Ein besonderer Fokus liegt dabei auf der Entkopplung der Direktzahlungen. Zweitens soll die Wirkung der Direktzahlungen bei einer heterogenen Agrarstruktur analysiert werden. In Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass empirische Ergebnisse bezüglich dieser Fragestellungen begrenzt sind, hat die vorliegende Arbeit das Ziel, die bestehende Wissenslücke zu füllen.
