    Aims and topics

    During Germany’s EU Council Presidency in 2020, the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) will host an interdisciplinary labour market conference. This conference will focus on labour market transitions and on the evaluation of policies that governments implement to smooth such transitions. To expand the frontiers of knowledge about the importance of the labour market for individuals’ lives and the role of governments in adapting to changes in individuals’ transition patterns and demographic and technological change, we are interested in papers that focus on:

    • Labour market transitions of young individuals (e.g. leaving education)
    • Labour market transitions of unemployed individuals
    • Transitions into retirement
    • Household decisions and labour market transitions (e.g. employment and parenthood)
    • Technological change and labour market transitions
    • Firms and labour market transitions
    • Educational decision making in the school system and in the labour market (e.g. further training)
    • Monetary and non-monetary consequences of labour market transitions

    Submissions will preferably apply (quasi-)experimental or longitudinal designs.

    Keynote Speakers

    • Jutta Allmendinger (WZB)
    • Christian Dustmann (University College London, CReAM)
    • László Andor (former EU Commissioner of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion)
    • Dennis Radtke (MdEP)
