Labour market policies and institutions

Hosted by the Bank of Italy, Rome, 19-20 September 2024


The 7th CEPR-Bank of Italy Workshop: Labour market policies and institutions will take place in Rome on September 19-20, 2024. The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading and emerging labour economists.

Although we invite submissions on a broader set of topics, we particularly welcome papers on:

  • Wage setting: minimum wages, unions, collective bargaining, payroll taxes, hiring subsidies
  • Institutions that increase the resilience of the labour markets to shocks: short-term work schemes, unemployment benefits
  • Policies aimed at fostering labour supply: family-friendly and migration policies, pension reforms
  • Institutions that improve the matching of workers to jobs: active labour market policies, on-the-job training
  • Anti-poverty programs: basic income schemes, income subsidies

Keynote speakers will be David Autor (MIT) and Claudia Olivetti (Dartmouth College).


The workshop will take place at the Bank of Italy headquarter in Rome. Financial support to all speakers for economy class air travel (in accordance with the CEPR Travel guidelines) and 1-night hotel accommodation (2 nights for non-European travelers; up to 200 euros per night) will be provided to all speakers (further details will be provided upon acceptance). In order to foster the desired interaction, participants are required to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. The programme will start on Thursday morning (September 19) and end on Friday afternoon (September 20).
