The course will combine theoretical concepts, empirical evidence and empirical approaches, including the use of econometrics tools in labor market economics. We will discuss the importance of particular important labor market institutions and policies, explain the motivations for their establishment, and we will apply labour economics to explain and empirically evaluate the labor market effects of institutions and policy changes. Critical discussions about public policy designs will be encouraged.
