About the Summer School

The IZA Summer School in Labor Economics was created in 1998, as an annual event taking place at the conference center of Deutsche Post DHL at the Ammersee lake (near Munich) in Bavaria, Germany. After pausing for two years because of the pandemic, we are excited to resume this event in 2022 (in accordance with the applicable COVID-19 regulations).
The objective of the Summer School is to bring together PhD students and senior lecturers to study topics in labor economics. Students have the opportunity to present their work and discuss ideas with established researchers in a relaxed and open atmosphere.
The Summer School is open to advanced graduate students from European universities, engaged in the preparation of a doctoral dissertation or approaching that stage. Due to the current restrictions, 15 students will be selected for this year’s event, based on their preparation to participate in the advanced study of labor economics.
    Randi Hjalmarsson (University of Gothenburg)
    “Selected Topics in the Economics of Crime: Prisons, Juries, (and More)”

    Seth Sanders (Cornell University and IZA)
    “Theory, Estimation and Applications of Finite Mixture Models”


Applications to participate should be submitted by January 31, 2022, using the online application form.

Please submit your CV and an abstract for a potential presentation of your research work. A letter of support from your PhD supervisor must be sent before the deadline by email to Andreas Lichter (lichter@iza.org).
