International Workshop "Flexibility in Heterogeneous Labour Markets"

Call for Papers: „Flexibility in Heterogeneous Labour Markets“ (25. - 27. 03. 2010)

Keynote speakers: Stephen Machin (University College London/London School of Economics), Jeffrey Smith (University of Michigan), Bruce Weinberg (Ohio State University)

In today’s ever-changing economic conditions, workers and firms are experiencing the constant pressure to adjust employment, wages, working hours, technology, and human capital to meet new needs. Increasing international integration, changing demand for goods and services, as well as changing institutions require labour market flexibility. This workshop invites empirical and theoretical contributions to this topic from all areas of labour economics and related fields such as the economics of education, industrial economics, health economics, international economics, or public finance.
The workshop is being organized by DFG-Priority Programme “Flexibility in Heterogeneous Labour Markets”.
