    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.

4th World Bank/Banco de Espania Research Conference: Labor Markets - Growth, Productivity and Inequality
June 16, 2016 - June 17, 2016

The conference, sponsored by Banco de España and The World Bank, will take place at the Banco de España headquarters in Madrid, on June 16 and 17, 2016. The goal of
the conference is to bring together academics and policy makers to discuss labor markets dynamics and their relation with growth. Drawing on state-of-the-art economic research, we are looking for new evidence on the labor market responses to macroeconomic and policy changes after the Great Recession, and on how employment levels and wages are likely to react to different labor market programs and policies. We are particularly interested in papers that assess the interplay between labor market structure and rigidities and the response to business cycle fluctuations, as well as papers that provide new evidence on the effects of demand and supply side changes on employment, wages, and inequality. We are also interested in papers that discuss how different policies are likely to affect employment quality, labor productivity and growth. The geographical scope of the conference is global, but special consideration will be given to papers on emerging markets broadly and Latin America in particular.
