CfP IZA Summer School in Labor Economics

The IZA Summer School in Labor Economics was created in 1998, as an annual event taking place at the conference center of Deutsche Post DHL at the Ammersee lake (near Munich) in Bavaria, Germany. After pausing for two years because of the pandemic, we are excited to resume this event in 2022 (in accordance with the applicable COVID-19 regulations).

The objective of the Summer School is to bring together PhD students and senior lecturers to study topics in labor economics. Students have the opportunity to present their work and discuss ideas with established researchers in a relaxed and open atmosphere.


Lecturers:Randi Hjalmarsson (University of Gothenburg)
