19. FIW Workshop: Trade, Migration and Labor Market Outcomes


FIW-Workshop "Trade, Migration and Labor Market Outcomes"


Thursday, February 25, 2016, 8:30 a.m - 5:00 p.m..
Austrian Institute of Economic Research - WIFO, Arsenal Object 20, 1030 Vienna

The goal of this one-day workshop on Trade, Migration and Labor Market Outcomes is to bring together leading theoretical and empirical economists from the field to stimulate interaction and instigate policy conclusions based on novel research that combines new theory with new empirics. The one-day workshop will deal with the relationship between trade, migration and labor markets, a theme that has gained particular policy attention, given the increased concerns of internationalisation patterns and migration flows for home country labor market outcomes. We are delighted to welcome Prof. Gianmarco Ottaviano (London School of Economics and Political Science) as our keynote speaker, additionally the workshop will consist of three academic sessions.


The workshop is organised by Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO) in cooperation within the Research Center International Economics (FIW).

The FIW is a project of the The Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW). It is a collaboration of WIFO, wiiw, WSR and Vienna University of Economics and Business, University of Vienna and Johannes Kepler University Linz.

(Papers and Powerpoint presentations, as far as available, are posted on our website after the workshop.)
