    IZA/OECD Workshop: Applications with Linked Employer-Employee Data


    The workshop seeks to bring together researchers who share an interest in using linked employer-employee data for innovative and policy-relevant research. The workshop will take place on April 10 and be preceded by a policy seminar with a keynote speaker on April 9. The workshop is organized in the context of the OECDs LinkEED v 2.0 project that seeks to enhance our understanding of the role of policies in inclusive growth through cross-country analytical work based on linked employer-employee data from different OECD countries. We welcome submissions of applied papers using linked employer-employee data in all areas.

    2nd IZA/OECD Workshop: Climate Change and the Labor Market


    The IZA/OECD workshops aim to increase synergies between researchers and OECD experts to promote the societal impact of academic research and the relevance of expertise. These workshops are organized twice a year and focus on topics of particular importance to the economy and society. They bring together researchers from the IZA network, OECD experts and policymakers. They take place by videoconference, over half a day, with presentations by experts, researchers and discussions with policymakers.

IZA Workshop on Social and Welfare Consequences of Unemployment
March 03, 2017 - March 04, 2017

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.
