UB School of Economics to host the XVI edition of the Labour Economics Meeting

The Spanish Association of Labour Economics (AEET) and the University of Barcelona School of Economics (UBSE) will hold the XVI Labour Economics Meeting on July 11-12, 2024 at the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Barcelona.

The Labour Economics Meeting will feature two keynote speakers: Ana Rute Cardoso (Instituto de Ciencias Sociais, Universidade de Lisboa) and Joan Monràs (Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco).

A roundtable discussion on gender and the labor market will feature participants Libertad González (Universitat Pompeu Fabra & BSE), Marta Curto (Generalitat de Catalunya), and Zelda Brutti (Competence Centre on Microeconomic Evaluation, European Commission – Joint Research Centre S.3).

In this edition, the Econometrics course preceding the meeting (July 10, 2024) will be presented by Lídia Farré (IAE-CSIC & BSE). The topic of the course will be Regression Discontinuity Design.

The Labour Economics Meeting aims to provide a platform for discussing crucial issues pertaining to the functioning and outcomes of the labor market, as well as economic policies devised for it. Since its creation in 1995, the Labour Economics Meeting has evolved into the premier gathering for economists specializing in labor market studies, hailing from various universities and research centers. The primary objectives of these meetings are to encourage and disseminate research on the labor market, facilitate expertise development in this field, and foster networking opportunities. This includes exchanging papers and research findings among diverse individuals and institutions on both national and international scales.

As in previous instances, PhD candidates will receive a reduced fee. Additionally, a new edition of the Luis Toharia Grant for young researchers in labour economics will be available.
