Policy day media lunch
December 2023Nairobi, Kenya
This course addresses the question of why fundamentally equal humans living in different countries enjoy very different standards of living. The aim of this course is to make the very latest research in economics on these issues accessible to anyone who is sufficiently curious about it. It is modeled after the award-winning undergraduate development course at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and, like its model, it is entirely based on research articles.
Over lunch, local and international press were introduced to IZA World of Labor as a rich resource for journalists writing about labor economics-related topics.
There were two short panels, followed by a Q&A. These were:
- The Link between Skills and Labor Markets, with Education Minister Jaime Saavedra-Chanduvi, the acting vice president for poverty reduction and economic management at the World Bank;
- Evidence-Based Labor Market Policies with the Minister for Employment Promotion Edgar Quispe.
The lunch followed the 9th Annual Conference on Employment and Development, in partnership with IZA and the World Bank (25-26th June 2014), and a policy day on Education and Labor Markets (27th June 2014).
