We have selected events that we think are relevant to policymakers and/or that involve the IZA World of
Labor. Also included are a selection of IZA events (further IZA events can be found here)
The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers analyzing (the effects of different) forms of non-union representation, and to put their findings into international comparative perspective
Science Po, Paris
The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for high-quality work in labour economics and to bring together economists in the field from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region.
Like many forms of economic exchange, the process of matching workers to jobs has rapidly migrated online in the last two decades. Thus, understanding how online labor matching mechanisms work; how they affect economic outcomes like employment, wages, and inequality; and learning how to take advantages of the ‘big data’ that are generated by online markets all have important implications for the future of labor.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together about 30 researchers working on the economics of education, in particular on the theme “Education and the Labor Market”.
This second IZA/Higher School of Economics workshop will bring together labor economists who are working on labor market adjustment in the post-Soviet states that emerged from the breakup of the Soviet Union, post-transition countries of Central Europe as well as China. While the main focus of the workshop is on the specified topic, papers on other labor market themes pertinent in emerging and post-transition economies will also be considered.
The most recent evolution in work and production – stemming not only from the impact of technology, but also from globalization and demographic dynamics – opens a new and particularly attractive field of scientific debate.
