2nd IZA Workshop: The Economics of Education
May 2021Philadelphia, United States
The aim of the 2021 workshop of IZA's Environment, Health, and Labor Markets program area is to bring together researchers analyzing the impact of environmental factors and health policies on labor market outcomes, human capital outcomes, industrial activity, production decisions and demographic outcomes.
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.
Despite efforts to mitigate the extent of climate change, exposure to extreme events such as heatwaves, floods, and hurricanes will become more prevalent for the entire world’s population. In addition to causing damages to the environment and human health, climate change as well as adaptation to global warming pose challenges for the functioning of labor markets. In particular, this raises questions about the implications of climate change for a range of labor market outcomes, among others human capital formation, migration decisions, location decisions of firms, labor supply and productivity of workers, and labor demand across occupations.Online
Kevin Lang (Boston University and IZA), President of the Society of Labor Economists (SOLE) and Daniel S. Hamermesh (Barnard College and IZA), IZA Network Director will attend the meeting and will share some thoughts with about the 20 years of the IZA/SOLE Transatlantic Meeting of Labor Economists. In addition, two participants from the very first IZA/SOLE meeting Petra Todd (University of Pennsylvania and IZA) and Coen Teulings (University of Cambridge and IZA) have agreed to present new work at this year’s meeting again.
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
The 2020 World Employment Conference originally planned to take place from September 29 to October 1 in Madrid, Spain has been postponed to September 2021.Padua, Italy
The European Association of Labour Economists are pleased to invite all labour economists to submit papers for presentations at the 33rd Annual Conference of the European Association of Labour Economists, to be held in Padua Italy, 16-18 September 2021.
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 aim of the workshop is to gather about 30 researchers working on the economics of education, in particular on the theme "Making schools work - better"
The highlight of the workshop is the keynote lecture, which will be delivered by Prof. David N. Figlio (Northwestern University and IZA).
Schools provide a primary source of skill production, and classroom environments are important (even if class size may not be) in shaping individuals’ careers and life outcomes. Thus, educational policy bears an enormous responsibility for ensuring that schooling systems provide effective opportunities for individual educational success. Of course, family background, financial constraints, and further disruptive influences may play a role in outcomes and it may be the case that school policy can address this at source - rather than relying on the tax and welfare system to fix the consequences later in life.
Against this background, the workshop aims to gather researchers to discuss (among others) the following themes:
- Easing school-to-work transition
- Evaluation of schooling reforms
- School financing
- Technological change in the classroom
- Field Experiments in primary and secondary education
- Peer effects in primary and secondary education
The program will consist of 24 individual talks and a poster session for local researchers.
Researchers interested in participating should submit an extended abstract or a full paper by May 31, 2017, using the IZA online application form.
