Austrian Labor Economics Workshop 2023

The 7th Austrian Labor Economics Workshop will be held at the Chamber of Labour (Arbeiterkammer) in Vienna this year.

The aim of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of recent research projects in the broad field of labor economics. Contributions of empirical and theoretical studies are welcome, including topics related to labor markets, social policy, income distribution, migration, education, health, or gender economics. We want to bring together researchers working with a wide range empirical and theoretical approaches.

The workshop offers room for an open and collegial discussion and welcomes preliminary or controversial research.

Please register here until 3 November 2023.
