About our partners and publisher

IZA World of Labor is an innovative resource developed by the IZA-Institute of Labor Economics. We collaborate closely with editors and authors worldwide. Our institutional partners include the OECD as well as the World Bank Group. 


The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an intergovernmental organisation, founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress and world trade. IZA cooperates with the OECD by organizing IZA/OECD workshops aimed to increase synergies between researchers and OECD experts to promote the societal impact of academic research and the relevance of expertise. These workshops are organized twice a year and focus on topics of particular importance to the economy and society. They bring together researchers from the IZA network, OECD experts and policymakers.


World Bank

Established in 1944, the World Bank Group is headquartered in Washington, DC. The World Bank Group has two ambitious goals: end extreme poverty within a generation, and boost shared prosperity. One of the World Bank's key projects is the World Bank Jobs and Development Blog which presents solutions that will lead to more, better and inclusive jobs by presenting ideas and perspectives from global thought leaders on the jobs challenge. In context of the IZA World of Labor, the World Bank and IZA collaborate on the development and dissemination of articles in the subject area Development.
