3rd IDSC of IZA/University of Luxembourg Workshop: Matching Workers and Jobs Online - New Developments and Opportunities for Social Science and PracticeBonn, Germany
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.

Many post-transition and emerging economies have been particularly hard hit by the Financial Crisis and the Great Recession. Some economies had to go through very large recessionary shocks that had long-lasting effects for the labor market, human capital formation and growth. The Great Recession also slowed down systemic reform efforts in many countries. Hence, it strikes us as important to take stock of the performance of post-transition and emerging economies nearly ten years after the Great Recession, putting the focus on labor market adjustments and outcomes. It is instructive to look at how workers, firms and governments adjusted in the labor market to the economic shocks that occurred and which challenges lie still ahead to overcome the aftermath of the crisis.
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.
While extended abstracts are also welcome, we prefer full-fledged papers. Please use our online submission form before the submission deadline June 15, 2018. We will send out acceptance notifications by July 15, 2018.
