    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.

AIEL XXXV National Conference of Labour Economics
September 17, 2020 - September 18, 2020
Due to the global health situation caused by coronavirus pandemic, the AIEL 2020 Annual Conference scheduled at the University of Salerno has been postponed to September 2021. For this year, the Board has decided to organize an online conference.

The Italian Association of Labour Economists is pleased to invite you to attend the 35th Annual Conference to be held online, on September 17-18, 2020. More information on the web platform will be provided in due course.

The program includes invited lectures and parallel sessions. The conference provides an opportunity to discuss issues related to the functioning of the labour market and to develop research collaborations.

Theme: Causes and consequences of inequality in the labor market and beyond.
The theme of the AIEL conference is inequality considered from different points of view. Public interest on this topic has grown substantially in recent years: economists, politicians and other stakeholders share a concern about increasing inequality as a threat to social stability. The Covid health emergency and the subsequent economic crisis has emphasised even further the need of effective policies to fight increasing inequality between and within countries. Yet, a constructive discussion on inequality, its causes and economic, social and political consequences cannot take place without a clear definition of it. Inequality has many dimensions: gender, age, geographical residence, ethnicity, nationality, religion, health and other kinds of capabilities. It can also manifest itself in several forms: differences in earnings, in opportunities for education, work and services (health, transport), in career opportunities or in taxation. Inequality is often linked to the akin phenomenon of discrimination, but the differences between these two concepts can be quite subtle and complex.

Keynote speakers:
This year the AIEL keynote lecture will be delivered by Claudia Olivetti – Dartmouth College, USA
