IZA/DFID Workshop on Growth and Labor Markets in Low Income Countries: Setting the Research Agenda
IZA and DFID organize the first workshop in their joint program on growth and labor markets in low-income countries. The GLM-LIC program aims to improve worldwide knowledge on labor market issues in low-income countries and provide a solid basis for capacity building and the development of future labor market policies. Over a period of five years, promising research and capacity-building activities in the field will be selected for funding with the overall objective of delivering a significant new body of evidence on growth and labor markets that will help shape policies in LICs. The aim of this first workshop is to further shape the research agenda through presentations and a panel discussion involving key experts in the field of development and labor markets.
