The World Labor Conference 2018

July 12 2018
IBS research was presented at the IZA World Labor Conference in Berlin.

Around 200 economists participated in the IZA World Labor Conference which took place on June 29-30 in Berlin. The conference marked 20 years of IZA. Keynotes were delivered by Christopher A. Pissarides (London School of Economics and IZA), who talked about work in the age of robots and AI, and by Francine D. Blau (Cornell University and IZA), who discussed the evolution of the gender wage gap and factors behind it. The conference included a total of 48 session which spanned a broad range of labour-related issues. Moreover, Joseph G. Altonji (Yale University) received the 2018 IZA Prize in Labor Economics for his seminal contributions to the economic analysis of labor supply, family economics and discrimination.

IBS was represented by Piotr Lewandowski, Iga Magda and Marta Palczyńska. Piotr Lewandowski spoke about technology and the global distribution of routine and non-routine work. Iga Magda analysed the within- and between-firm drivers of wage inequality in Central and Eastern Europe. Marta Palczyńska discussed how personality traits influence the returns to cognitive skills in Poland.
