4th IZA/Higher School of Economics Workshop: Thirty Years after the Fall of the Iron Curtain: The Contribution of Labor Market Adjustment to Transition and ConvergenceOnline
This is an updated call for papers as the workshop planned for 2020 was cancelled due the COVID-19 crisis. We still would like to keep the overall theme developed for 2020, but we also intend to include two sessions that deal with the impact of COVID-19 on labor markets in post-transition and emerging economies.
We are pleased to invite submissions for the next IZA Workshop on Labor Market Institutions. The aim of the meeting is to bring together senior and junior researchers to discuss their most recent research related to labor market institutions.Madrid, Spain

4th IDSC of IZA Workshop: Matching Workers and Jobs Online - New Developments and Opportunities for Social Science and PracticeOnline
Like many forms of economic exchange, the process of matching workers to jobs has rapidly migrated online in the last two decades. Thus, understanding how online labor matching mechanisms work; how they affect economic outcomes like employment, wages, and inequality; and learning how to take advantages of the ‘big data’ that are generated by online markets all have important implications for the future of labor.
The old-age dependency ratio – the ratio of the population aged 65 and over to the population aged 15-64 – is projected to increase significantly in many countries, reflecting diminishing fertility rates and increasing longevity in these countries. The ratios in Japan, Spain, Italy and Greece are expected to grow to over 60% in 2050 according to OECD projections, from around 25% in these countries in 2000. This rapid aging of the population poses a significant challenge for societies, including rising deficits in public pension accounts. Many countries aim to respond in part by increasing the employment rate of groups of people who have sometimes been marginally attached to the labor market, such as youth, women with children, and the elderly, to help address this challenge.
The IZA Journal of Labor Policy and the RIETI join forces to present research that will help policymakers tackle the challenge of increasing employment to help counter the economic effects of population aging.
