    IZA/OECD Workshop: Applications with Linked Employer-Employee Data


    The workshop seeks to bring together researchers who share an interest in using linked employer-employee data for innovative and policy-relevant research. The workshop will take place on April 10 and be preceded by a policy seminar with a keynote speaker on April 9. The workshop is organized in the context of the OECDs LinkEED v 2.0 project that seeks to enhance our understanding of the role of policies in inclusive growth through cross-country analytical work based on linked employer-employee data from different OECD countries. We welcome submissions of applied papers using linked employer-employee data in all areas.

    2nd IZA/OECD Workshop: Climate Change and the Labor Market


    The IZA/OECD workshops aim 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. They take place by videoconference, over half a day, with presentations by experts, researchers and discussions with policymakers.

2nd IZA/HSE Workshop: Ten Years after the Financial Crisis - Labor Market Adjustment in Emerging and Post-Transition Economies - Call for papers
October 11, 2018 - October 12, 2018

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.
