Invited Session of the Standing Field Committee of Population Economics
"Field experiments in labour economics"
This session comprises field experiments in labour economics from Sweden, Switzerland, and Germany. Specifically, the papers examine the effects of job recommendation systems, using social contacts for job search, and of caseworker meetings before jobseekers become unemployed. Each paper provides compelling evidence on a specific intervention to improve job search. By bringing together these different projects, the session promises insights into how we can design and implement such interventions and ultimately derive insights that are relevant beyond the specific question.
