Workshop on Social Insurance and Public Policies

Starts: May 18, 2020 Ends: May 19, 2020

Sala de Recepcions - Facultat d'Economia i Empresa. John M. Keynes, 1-11. Barcelona


The workshop will focus on challenges to the social insurance systems and their potential solutions. We invite submissions of empirical papers on the evaluation of policies that affect any of the components of the social insurance system such as the sickness, disability, unemployment, parental leave programs directly or indirectly.

In particular, the workshop will focus around topics related to behavioural responses to public policies that have an impact on any of the social insurance systems with a special emphasis on absenteeism rates, health and labour outcomes, among others.
