University of Milan, Italy, and IZA, Germany

Providing accessible reading of sound research is a deeply needed though difficult endeavor. When leaving the realm of academia to be presented to a wider audience results are often presented in a catchy but insufficiently rigorous way. IZA World of Labor is instead committed at maintaining high standards and is therefore an excellent project that bridges the gap between academia and policy making
