To coincide with International Workers’ Day on May 1, 2014, IZA hosted an exclusive event to officially launch IZA World of Labor.
The breakfast meeting comprised a roundtable discussion led by IZA Director Klaus F. Zimmermann, and chaired by Dr Arup Banerji, Global Director for Social Protection and Labor at The World Bank.
IZA’s Amelie F. Constant made a special presentation of her paper, “Do migrants take the jobs of native workers?” to the audience of senior policymakers from the US Department of Labor, US Chamber of Commerce and the American Federation of Labor. IZA World of Labor was further represented by Solomon W. Polachek and Robert Lerman.
