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.

Today, over 66 million youth are without a job globally and nearly 145 million youth are working, yet living in poverty. Launched in 2016, Decent Jobs for Youth has evolved as the global initiative to scale up action and impact on youth employment under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
In 2017, partners of Decent Jobs for Youth prepared thematic plans of action anchored in rigorous and empirical evidence. The plans highlight what works, identify innovations, and offer concrete ideas to scale up action and impact across the thematic priorities. With a concrete value proposition, Decent Jobs for Youth launched its engagement platform in November 2017, expanding the alliance with strategic partners from governments, social partners, youth and civil society, private sector and beyond. It is centred on the commitments of partners to take joint action on youth employment at local, country, regional and global level in line with the strategy and guiding principles of Decent Jobs for Youth.
In 2018, Decent Jobs for Youth will be translating evidence into action at country level. To support scalability, partners will direct efforts towards identifying innovations that work. This effort includes initiating a conversation about innovative financing for youth employment and exploring cutting-edge mechanisms with potential for wide replication and high impact on labour market outcomes of youth.
The event brings together partners of Decent Jobs for Youth and other key youth employment actors to:
- Stimulate innovative thinking and collaboration on youth employment advancing Decent Jobs for Youth’s strategy for 2018-2019.
- Exchange lessons learned and good practices on innovative financing to scale up action on youth employment.
- Create an open space for collaboration and networking under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, launch new commitments for Decent Jobs for Youth, and highlight how existing commitments translate our guiding principles into action.
