Following the success of the 2016 and 2018 Jobs and Development Conferences in Washington DC and Bogotá, the World Bank in collaboration with IZA (Institute of Labor Economics) and the Network on Jobs and Development are organizing a follow up conference focused on “Improving Jobs Outcomes in Developing Countries.”Buch/Ammersee, Germany
The IZA Summer School in Labor Economics was created in 1998, as an annual event taking place at the conference center of Deutsche Post DHL at Ammersee Lake (near Munich) in Bavaria, Germany.Buch/Ammersee, Germany
We are pleased to announce the organization of the 18th IZA/SOLE Transatlantic Meeting of Labor Economists to be held at the Ammersee Conference Center in Bavaria, Germany, on June 27-30, 2019.
While most research in labor economics focuses on advanced economies, the majority of the world’s population and particularly of the poor live in countries where labor markets often work quite differently. To stimulate and promote research on employment and labor economics in low and middle income countries, the World Bank and IZA initiated in 2006 a work program on “Employment and Development”.
This annual conference on Employment and Development provides a platform for researchers and policy experts to discuss new research findings and identify areas where further analytical and policy oriented work is needed.
