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 industrialized countries have implemented environmental policies in order to reduce emissions that are harmful to the environment and global climate. While the benefits of such policies accrue in form of increased health, worker productivity, and quality of life, the costs of environmental regulations are mostly borne through potential impacts on industrial activity and labor market outcomes. Thus successful policy development requires detailed information on the connection between environmental regulations and labor markets as well as industrial activity.
The aim of the 2016 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.
