Kim Østergaard

Kim Østergaard’s research mostly concerns strategic contracting in close collaboration with Professor Bent Petersen from the Department of International Economics, Government and Business at CBS. Strategic contracting is based on whether theories of economics can be instrumental in qualifying the content of the basis of contract for the purposes of each parties’ interest in maintaining the competitive advantages and, if possible, relational interest, as it is described in economic theory.

Strategic contracting is based on a principle of fairness and repeated games. Strategic contracting is a developing theoretical framework in the sense that it now also includes the perspective of the global value chain primarily as a result of the acts from the EU, which influence and will continue influence the demand for sustainability across the value chains in the future. Thus, they demand an increased use of collaboration in regard to innovation, sharing of profits, exchange of strategic information etc.

Kim Østergaard is also part of the Nordic Research Lab for Climate Law and Economics.
