IZA World of Labor

2nd IZA Junior/Senior Symposium

2nd IZA Junior/Senior Symposium
May 01, 2017 - May 02, 2017

After an extremely successful initial Symposium in Bonn in July, the second IZA Junior/Senior Labor Symposium will be held at the University of Texas at Austin, USA, on Monday and Tuesday, May 1-2, 2017. We shall have 10 papers presented by authors who are between 1 and 6 years past the Ph.D. No author on any accepted paper should be outside this range of experience. 

In addition to the ten authors in attendance, two senior labor economists, Pierre Cahuc of CREST, École Polytechnique and IZA, and Daniel Hamermesh of IZA and Royal Holloway University of London, will attend throughout and will comment on the papers as they are presented, thus providing some extra mentoring at an early stage of scholars’ careers. Moreover, each paper will be discussed formally by one of the other junior attendees.
