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

    Paris

    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.

    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.

The 3rd DEC 2019 on Social Institutions and the Economic Performance of Nations: A 21st Century Perspective
June 17, 2019 - June 19, 2019

Since the first conference in 2015, DEC has been growing into a leading biennial conference on development economics. After the success of the 2nd DEC, held in Lincoln in 2017, they expect this year’s conference to attract a large number of established scholars as well as early career researchers and PhD students from the UK and overseas universities and institutes. Alongside the extensive conference programme featuring prominent keynote and invited speakers there will also be offered training sessions for PhD students and early career researchers.

The broad theme of DEC 2019 is framed along the lines of the late Douglas North’s seminal contributions of the late last century to address issues arising out of the social and political turbulence affecting the global community in the 21st century. The conference will primarily aim to examine how these issues have been affecting the economic performance of nations at micro and macro levels.
