IZA Policy Seminar

IZA Logo

The aim of the IZA Policy Seminar is to intensify the communication between policymakers and researchers from IZA as well as the external interested audience. On the one hand, the seminar provides researchers with valuable insights about political thinking and acting. On the other hand, it gives national and international political decision makers the opportunity to discuss economic and social questions with labor market researchers.

The seminar takes place once a month depending on the schedule of our renowned guests.
Presentations are given in English or German. The meetings are open to the public.

This page is maintained by Caroline Wehner, organizer of the IZA Policy Seminars.
