3rd IZA Workshop: Labor Market Effects of Environmental Policies
The aim of the 2015 workshop of IZA’s “Environment and Employment” program area is to bring together researchers analyzing wider labor market impacts of environmental policies.
We particularly encourage submissions of papers that provide credible empirical evidence on the following issues:
*Effects on sectoral energy prices, industrial output and employment
*Effects on individual productivity, human capital acquisition and well-being
*Labor market effects of structural transitions towards renewable energy sources
*Design of optimal public policies, such as taxation of energy consumption, with regard to their distributional impacts.
