Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, the Institute for Employment Research, and the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, as part of the Ensuring Economic and Employment Stability (EES) network, organize a workshop, which will be held in Nürnberg, Germany, on October 13 & 14. Pierre Cahuc (Ecole Polytechnique), Mike Elsby (University of Edinburgh) and Wouter den Haan (London School of Economics) have confirmed their participation.
The conference aims to bring together high-quality research that is at the intersection of labor economics and macroeconomics. We invite researchers to submit related empirical and theoretical contributions. Papers using microeconomic data are especially welcome. Among the areas of interest are:
1. Institutions, wages and labor market dynamics
2. Effects of labor market reforms
3. Firm dynamics and labor market flows
Approximately 10 papers will be selected for presentation and discussants will be assigned.
