The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers from a broad range of economic fields to discuss ongoing research on the future of work. Papers investigating skill requirements in the digital age and how (re-)training may help workers to adapt to changing work environments and new skill demand are of particular interest.
The new book “Labour Markets in Low-Income Countries: Challenges and Opportunities” by David Lam and Ahmed Elsayed addresses some of the most important issues affecting labour markets in low-income countries. The book builds heavily on new research evidence that has been provided by the programme on Growth and Labour Markets in Low-Income Countries (GLM|LIC).

The broad topic of the conference is ‘International Economics’. This includes, inter alia, International Trade, International Factor Movements, Economic Integration, Trade Policy, International Trade Organizations, Economic Growth of Open Economies, Multinational Firms, Global Value Chains, International Macroeconomics and other related fields.
