The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers studying organisational issues from an international comparative perspective. Contributions based on all sources of enterprise data are welcomed.
In the aftermath of the Great Recession unemployment rates remain high in many countries with an increasing trend of long-term unemployment. Against this background we are pleased to invite submissions for the IZA Workshop on Social and Welfare Consequences of Unemployment. The aim of the 2017 workshop of IZA’s “Labor Markets” program area is to bring together senior and junior researchers to discuss their recent research on the consequences of unemployment with an emphasis on social and welfare aspects.
We encourage submissions of papers that provide credible empirical evidence on the effects of unemployment on health (including mental health), well-being, insecurity, crime and violence, suicide, life expectancy and skills depreciation. Other related topics will also be considered.
