Headline: Programme: DFG – Priority Programme “The German Labor Market in a Globalized World: Challenges through Trade, Technology, and Demographics” (SPP 1764)
Montag, 10. Oktober 2016 “The central purpose of the Priority Programme is to develop a deeper understanding of the challenges facing labor markets in Germany in particular and throughout Europe in a global context. The programme addresses pertinent research issues on the link between trade, technology, and demographic changes as they affect wages and employment.
In an international perspective, the programme will analyze empirically the way the German labor market works with particular emphasis on the role of institutions and policies, on the explanation for the increase in inequality, on demographic changes, and on the links to education and important non-economic motives and outcomes. An understanding of these issues based on microeconomic, microeconometric, and sociological analysis is key for policies relating to skills development of the population at all ages, family issues and gender in the labor market, demography, child development, health, social policies, crime, immigration, as well as the macroeconomic performance of the labor market and the reduction of unemployment. The challenges posed by competition and immigration (including refugee migration) combined with demographic developments do not only affect various labor market groups in different ways (with important consequences for inequality), but also force human resource management practices to adapt.
[…]The programme aims to make progress in areas of labor market research. The research areas where the programme invites proposals are:technology, globalization, tasks, wageseducation, vocational training, demographic changes, cognitive and non-cognitive skills, early childhood developmentgroup differences in labor market outcomesimperfect competition, institutions, government policy, unemploymenthuman resource management and organizational changeinteraction between the labor market and non-labor market outcomesWhile the programme has its focus in labor economics, its goals are best met by a broad collaboration involving researchers from different disciplines. The programme invites researchers in the fields of labor economics, sociology, and human resource management as well as related areas to submit proposals.”
