IZA/SOLE Transatlantic Meetings of Labor Economists


The IZA/SOLE Transatlantic Meetings are a joint initiative of IZA and the Society of Labor Economists (SOLE) to underline the prominent role of international labor market research in Europe as well as the US. This is an event where IZA invites the members of SOLE to meet European researchers.

The meetings are meant to stimulate international discussion and cooperation among labor economists. Today's developments in labor market research go so fast, are so exciting, and mushroom in so many places of this world, that having joint meetings every half decade does not serve the needs of our community.

Our idea is to provide an annual forum for economists worldwide who are involved in labor market research. This forum discusses many different aspects of problems that modern labor markets currently face. We thus hope to enhance our knowledge of basic labor market parameters and to improve our ability to predict the effects of changes in labor market policies.
