3rd IZA/HSE Workshop on Skills and Preferences and Labor Market Outcomes in Post-transition and Emerging EconomiesSt. Petersburg, Russia
Most empirical research on skills (cognitive and non-cognitive) and preferences has largely relied on data from high-income, industrialized countries. There is, however, a growing literature that extends this line of research to post-transition and emerging economies, which may be of particular scientific interest because it gives the opportunity to study contexts with a much wider variability of conditions.

The joint Cedefop/OECD symposium on apprenticeship brings together policy makers, practitioners and researchers from around the world to consider new research exploring the next steps for apprenticeship provision. The symposium organisers would welcome contributions on how apprenticeship provision is changing or would need to change in response to external mega trends, such as socio-demographic and socio-economic changes, new technologies and labour market changes, new forms of work organisation, trends in education and training.London, United Kingdom
The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, and to mark the occasion they will be holding a series of events throughout the year where they draw on this experience to consider these big issues and discuss what evidence-based analysis can tell us about how to understand and respond to them. Events in this series will feature expert insight from IFS researchers and key commentators on each topic, and there will be plenty of time for discussion and debate.IZA, Bonn

In spite of steady progress in closing gender inequality in several parts of the world over the last decades, gender remains a powerful predictor of many economic and social individual outcomes. Numerous national governments and international organizations have committed to address existing gender inequalities, on the grounds that protecting and promoting women’s rights is equivalent to protecting and promoting human rights. It is also generally understood that gender equality is instrumental in building societies that are more inclusive, and as such more socially and economically developed.
The conference will feature a combination of keynote speakers, paper presentations, and a panel discussion. Some of the themes addressed are the formation of social norms regarding women’s roles in society, intra-household bargaining power and reproductive decision-making, gender violence, and the glass ceiling for women in labor markets and politics.
