11th Workshop on Labor Economics and Social Policy
December 2023Nairobi, Kenya
This course addresses the question of why fundamentally equal humans living in different countries enjoy very different standards of living. The aim of this course is to make the very latest research in economics on these issues accessible to anyone who is sufficiently curious about it. It is modeled after the award-winning undergraduate development course at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and, like its model, it is entirely based on research articles.
The Dresden Branch of the ifo Institute and the Technische Universität Dresden, invite you to submit your (preliminary) paper to the 11th ifo Dresden Workshop on Labor Economics and Social Policy. This year, preference is given to contributions on the following topics:
- Immigrants' residential choice and skill distribution
- Health policies and health of the work force
- Early childhood interventions and skill formation
The workshop will be held in English. Each paper will be allocated 45 minutes, to be divided between the presentation, a discussion by an assigned workshop participant and a general discussion.
*Due to the general uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic, the workshop will take place online, or, if circumstances allow it, at the ifo Institute.
Scientific organizer(s): Alexander Kemnitz (Technische Universität Dresden), Mona Foertsch (ifo Institute, Dresden Branch), Katharina Heisig (ifo Institute, Dresden Branch), Stefanie Knoll (ifo Institute, Dresden Branch), Selina Schulze Spuentrup, (ifo Institute, Dresden Branch)
