Welcome to LaRGe

Labour Research Group at the Gutenberg School of Management and Economics facilitates, promotes and finances scientific communication in modern labour economics, aspiring at highest standards of rigor and policy relevance in the profession. Our philosophy considers labour market outcomes as a result of strategic economic behaviour of all parties involved, linking thereby labour theory and empirical analysis in a unified framework and placing us at the cutting edge of the structural economic and econometric modeling.

Core activities of the Group at this point include
º Running the visiting program
º Organizing regular research workshops

We further promote research interactions in the fields of our interest via research talks at the Department Seminar of the Gutenberg School of Management and Economics.
