4th IZA/Higher School of Economics Workshop: Thirty Years after the Fall of the Iron Curtain: The Contribution of Labor Market Adjustment to Transition and ConvergenceOnline
This is an updated call for papers as the workshop planned for 2020 was cancelled due the COVID-19 crisis. We still would like to keep the overall theme developed for 2020, but we also intend to include two sessions that deal with the impact of COVID-19 on labor markets in post-transition and emerging economies.
We are pleased to invite submissions for the next IZA Workshop on Labor Market Institutions. The aim of the meeting is to bring together senior and junior researchers to discuss their most recent research related to labor market institutions.Madrid, Spain

4th IDSC of IZA Workshop: Matching Workers and Jobs Online - New Developments and Opportunities for Social Science and PracticeOnline
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.
The Forum will bring together hundreds of experts from government, international organizations, official statistics, civil society, business and academia to move forward the international agenda on well-being and sustainability, with confirmed speakers including:
• Angel Gurría, Secretary General, OECD;
• Eduardo Sojo, President, INEGI;
• Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz;
• Professor Richard Layard;
• Professor Ravi Kanbur;
• Alicia Bárcena, Executive Secretary, Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC);
• Fabrizio Barca, Ministry for Economy and Finance, former Minister for Territorial Cohesion, Italy;
• Rebeca Grynspan, Secretary-General of The Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB);
• Aïcha bah Diallo, Chairman, Forum for African Women Educationalists; and
• Gus O’Donnell, Chair, Frontier Economics.
2015 marks the deadline of the Millennium Development Goals and the launch of a new process to make sustainable development a reality worldwide. Now more than ever the time is right to explore ways to enact change in policy and people’s behaviour to promote the well-being of individuals and the progress of societies beyond GDP.
As well as presenting concrete examples of policies, frameworks, institutions and measures that promote well-being around the world today, the 5th Forum will allow for the discussion of broader implementation issues across a number of topics of relevance to well-being policy and the SDG agenda.
