Kent Workshop in Labour Economics: Labour Supply, Employment and Policy

14 July 2017

The School of Economics invites submissions for a one-day Kent Workshop in Labour Economics which will take place on
14 July 2017

The focus of the workshop will be on the determination of economic status (work, self employment, entrepreneurial activity and so on) when individuals interact in a world with frictions or informational asymmetries. Topics of particular interest are given by, but not limited to, intra-household aspects of labour supply choices, employment creation policies, credit constraints, and transitions between economic states. Submission of theoretical papers and papers with structural econometric evaluations is equally encouraged. Keynote speech of the workshop will be delivered by Professor Costas Meghir (Yale University).

The deadline for submissions is 1 June 2017. Authors of submitted papers will be notified of decision shortly thereafter. For submission, please send your paper as an email attachment to Andrey Launov (

The University of Kent will provide accommodation and reimburse economy class travel expenses to all authors whose contributions were accepted for presentation at the workshop.

This workshop is a SaM event. This workshop is public and open to all.
