The spread of COVID-19 is the most severe public health crisis in recent history. The closure of child care, schools, and universities has impacted millions of students and has forced parents to reconcile childcare and working from home. At the same time, COVID-19 has substantially fostered the digitization of many learning environments.
The sudden disruption of children’s learning environments and everyday life may have long-lasting consequences for the development of cognitive and socio-emotional skills, as well as long-term labor market outcomes.
IZA and the Jacobs Center for Child and Youth Development organizes a joint workshop on the consequences of COVID-19. The workshop will take place online on October 19–20, 2020, and aims to bring together researchers for a two-day workshop to discuss the consequences of the COVID-19 crisis on:
- the development of children’s cognitive and socio-emotional skills
- parenting behavior
- inequality in educational success
- digitization of learning environments
- financial and non-financial resources
- mental resilience
- domestic violence
Please submit full papers or extended abstracts by August 31, 2020, using our online application form. Notifications on contributed papers will be sent by September 15, 2020.
