|Location:||Bonn, Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB), Germany|
|Subject:||This workshop invites empirical and theoretical contributions using the task-based approach from all areas of labour market research, and from related fields such as sociology and economics of vocational education and training, industrial economics, international comparisons, public finance, or stratification research. The scientific committee encourages contributions focusing on the role of job tasks in explaining (cross-) country changes in wages, occupational structures and skill demand, on worker heterogeneity in job tasks, on social and economic outcomes of the changing skill demand, on regional and international aspects of these trends, e.g. the trade in tasks, and on the measurement of tasks. Moreover, papers are welcome that employ the interaction of task changes and organisational change, the role of education and labour market institutions, and labour market imperfections.
