3rd Bank of Italy-CEPR Labour workshop - new session on Covid-19


Meeting Code: 

The spread of the coronavirus has resulted in many events around the world being cancelled, postponed or reformatted to allow for remote participation. Please note that CEPR is monitoring developments very carefully and liaising with all conference organisers regarding the best course of action to take for each event. If you are applying for or scheduled to attend one of our events, please look out for direct communications regarding your event from each organiser. If you have not yet received any specific advice we recommend that you hold off making any travel arrangements until further information has been given.



The 3rd Bank of Italy-CEPR Labour workshop will take place in Rome on the 10-11 September 2020, with the aim of bringing together leading and emerging labour economists.


While the general call for papers is now closed, we are inviting new submissions (abstracts or full papers) for an additional session on the labour market effects of the Covid-19 crisis. In particular, we welcome abstracts or full papers that focus on:

  • The impact of the Covid-19 crisis on labour supply, demand, matching efficiency and wages
  • The role of social protection policies and of different labour market institutions in absorbing the impact of the shock
  • Distributional impact of the Covid-19 crisis and the vulnerability of specific population subgroups
  • The economic consequences of remote work: the effects on productivity and work-life balance

Keynote speakers will be:
David Dorn (University of Zurich)
Lisa Kahn (University of Rochester)
Camille Landais (London School of Economics).

In order to foster the desired interaction, participants are required to stay for the entire duration of the conference. The programme will start on Thursday morning (10th) and end on Friday afternoon (11th).

Limited financial support for economy class air travel will be available in accordance with the CEPR guidelines; accommodation will be provided to all speakers.
