Labour, Health and Education under Demographic Change

9th European Workshop, Vienna

 

Call for Papers

We are pleased to invite papers for submission for the 9th European Workshop on

‘Labour, Health and Education under Demographic Change’,
17-18 September 2015,
at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, Austria.


Topics of Interest

The workshop focuses on economic analysis dealing with the interplay between demographic change and the labour market, health care and education. We welcome empirical and theoretical contributions from both a micro- and macro-economic perspective.

At micro-level we are interested, inter alia, in the impact of a prolonged life-course on labour supply and on the demand for health care and education; in health behaviours and education as determinants of longevity; in the relationship between fertility, female education and labour supply; in the interplay between demographic change and household allocations; in the way population ageing is changing occupational structures and career paths; and in the compatibility of labour supply, child care and old age care.

At macro-level we are interested, inter alia, in the impact of demographic change on the supply and demand for workers as well as on the finance of health care, long term care and education; in the interplay between demography and human capital as drivers of economic growth and development; in the spatial interrelationship between population change and labour markets, health care and education; and in the interplay between demographic change and gender equality.
