Education and Labor Markets: Policy day
December 2023Nairobi, Kenya
This course addresses the question of why fundamentally equal humans living in different countries enjoy very different standards of living. The aim of this course is to make the very latest research in economics on these issues accessible to anyone who is sufficiently curious about it. It is modeled after the award-winning undergraduate development course at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and, like its model, it is entirely based on research articles.
This event aimed to introduce a key audience to IZA World of Labor: a new, online resource that makes first-class academic research on labor economics freely and easily accessible to policy makers around the world.
Presentations by IZA World of Labor authors demonstrated the benefits of the knowledge hub to time-pressed policy makers and beyond in the region.
