    IZA/OECD Workshop: Applications with Linked Employer-Employee Data


    The workshop seeks to bring together researchers who share an interest in using linked employer-employee data for innovative and policy-relevant research. The workshop will take place on April 10 and be preceded by a policy seminar with a keynote speaker on April 9. The workshop is organized in the context of the OECDs LinkEED v 2.0 project that seeks to enhance our understanding of the role of policies in inclusive growth through cross-country analytical work based on linked employer-employee data from different OECD countries. We welcome submissions of applied papers using linked employer-employee data in all areas.

These workshops are organized twice a year and focus on topics of particular importance to the economy and society. They bring together researchers from the IZA network, OECD experts and policymakers. They take place by videoconference, over half a day, with presentations by experts, researchers and discussions with policymakers.

ICID/IZA/Renmin University/UCW Workshop on the Chinese Labor Market in Transition
November 18, 2016 - November 19, 2016

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.
