3rd IDSC of IZA/University of Luxembourg Workshop: Matching Workers and Jobs Online - New Developments and Opportunities for Social Science and PracticeBonn, Germany
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.Madrid, Spain
Leaders of the employment and recruitment industry, policymakers, academics, HR practitioners and trade unionists from around the world will come together with a single purpose: to exchange views on how to steer a labour market in transformation.
The Italian Centre for International Development (ICID), the Institute for Labor Economics (IZA), the School of Labor and Human Resources of Renmin University of China and the program Understanding Children’s Work (UCW) are organizing a workshop on the Chinese labor market.
This workshop wants to bring together junior and senior researchers who analyze the Chinese labor market in a rigorous fashion. While we invite contributions covering any aspect of labor market adjustment in China, one focus of the workshop will be the experience of young Chinese workers, where we are particularly interested in school-to-work transitions of young workers and in youth who enter the labor market early. Other important topics are the labor market experience of migrant workers during the crisis and beyond, measurement issues related to informality and job quality, as well as the costs of worker displacement during the crisis and more generally during episodes of restructuring.
