IZA Workshop on Health and Labor Markets
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.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together senior and junior researchers to present and discuss original research examining the link between health and the labor market.
Topics include (but are not limited to):
- Health and labor market outcomes
- Determinants of sickness absence
- Health insurance and the labor market
- Business cycles and health outcomes
- Family policies and child health outcomes
Confirmed participants to the workshop include Janet Currie (Princeton University and IZA), Thomas C. DeLeire (Georgetown University and IZA), Michael Grossman (CUNY Graduate Center and IZA), Pierre-Carl Michaud (HEC Montreal and IZA) and Erdal Tekin (American University and IZA).
The deadline for submission of complete papers is May 29, 2017.
