Mainz Workshop in Labour Economics

Mainz Workshop in Labour Economics is designed to provide a platform for discussion of new research avenues and recent theoretical and empirical advances in labour economics. Particular emphasis in this communication is placed at (but not limited to) search and matching theory and structural econometrics. It is being held at the University of Mainz at a rate of about two workshops per year. For the schedule of past and future workshops see the table below.

Mainz Workshop in Labour Economics is also a part of the European Search and Matching Network. Our workshops are public and open to all.
