Labor Markets, Families and Children - Workshop June 18th - 19th 2013

The UiS Business School is proud to host a Workshop on Labor Markets, Families and Children, which is meant to be an intimate gathering of a selected set of economists from the United States and Europe .

The Pulpit Rock

The workshop is sponsored by a grant from the Norwegian Research Council and is a cooperation between the UiS Business School together with The Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration.

The papers will focus on labor markets, families and children. The goal is to have high quality presentations in empirical microeconomics. By keeping the number of participants low, we hope to establish an informal, collegial and productive atmosphere for the discussion of each research project as well as the broader policy and research-design contexts.

The workshop is organized by Mari Rege (University of Stavanger - UiS Business School) and Kjell Gunnar Salvanes (Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration) in collaboration with Magne Mogstad (University College London).

Venue place: The University of Stavanger, Arne Rettedals hus (building), Room G-101
