Conference for the Handbook of Labor Economics, Volume 5

Conference for the Handbook of Labor Economics, Volume 5

Time: Berlin, October 19-21, 2023.

Location: Humboldt-Universität Berlin, Main Building, Senatssaal (1st floor), Unter den Linden 6, 10117 Berlin.


Since the first Volume was published in 1986, the Handbook of Labor Economics has been a fundamental source of knowledge, summarizing the frontier advances in the field of Labor Economics over the past years. First edited by Orley Ashenfelter and Richard Layard (Volumes 1 and 2 in 1986) and then by Orley Ashenfelter and David Card (Volume 3 in 1999 and Volume 4 in 2011), the new Handbook (Volume 5) is edited by Christian Dustmann and Thomas Lemieux. It will systematically review the research topics, empirical findings, and methods that constitute frontier research in Labor Economics over the past 1 ½ decades.

The ROCKWOOL Foundation Berlin and Humboldt-Universität Berlin will host a conference where the draft chapters of the new Handbook will be presented by leading labor economists who have made path-breaking contributions to the field.

The conference will be open to a limited number of external scholars. We will soon set up a registration system for those who are interested in attending.
