Workshop InGRID2 – Summer school

The summer school “Advanced research on integration of migrants and refugees” and “EU-SILC training workshop: Comparative research on migration” of InGRID2 aims at training doctoral students or early-career researchers. It is also opened to academics, policy practitioners and other interested users, providing participants with opportunities to discuss their projects and to network with leading international experts and other colleagues in the field.

The summer school will take place in the center of Berlin, at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and will be hosted by the Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) at the DIW Berlin. The SOEP will provide and organize logistics for the week.

Objectives and program

The issue of how immigrants and refugees integrate in their host countries, especially in terms of their labor force participation, is a key issue in many European countries and at EU level. On the one hand immigration tops the list of challenges of greatest concerns to European Union citizens, but at the same time there are numerous economic and political reasons to allow and to facilitate immigration in aging European countries. The provision of humanitarian assistance to forced migrants (refugees) is a key issue in Europe, but the uneven distribution of asylum seekers across the EU countries is a challenge.

The second part of the summer school focuses on comparative research on migration as a kind of EU-SILC training workshop including a workshop on EU-SILC clone. With the help of SOEP data, we have created a clone of EU-SILC longitudinal data for Germany that is especially valuable for migration researchers. In SOEP, different migration subsamples allow much more detailed analysis for migrants of the first or second generation living in Germany than the original EU-SILC-Sample provided by Eurostat. Furthermore, the workshop will cover advanced research on migration with the use of EU-SILC data.

The summer school will be organized in different sessions covering various topics of relevance for immigration research. Theoretical and empirical issues related to the processes by which immigrants gain social membership and develop the ability to participate in the destination country will be discussed. Senior researchers will present their work in this field, whereas participants will be encouraged to present their own research and receive feedback

The curriculum will include quantitative assessment to provide both a multidisciplinary perspective and a comprehensive understanding of the concept of integration. It will furthermore put a special emphasis on methodological issues related to the measurement of concepts of integration within EU countries.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets When and Why Can Forward Guidance De-anchor Expectations? (with Gaetano Gaballo, Peter Hoffmann and Georg Strasser)

    The form of forward guidance matters for its effectiveness in anchoring expectations about the future path of policy rates. We report cross-country evidence about the impact of different types of forward guidance on the reactiveness of markets to macroeconomic news and on disagreement across forecasters, and show that timecontingent forward guidance over a short horizon and open-ended forward guidance are ineffective at best, and add uncertainty about the policy path at worst. Time-contingent forward guidance over long horizons makes asset prices entirely unresponsive to incoming news, and eliminates all disagreement across forecasters, whereas state-contingent forward guidance preserves some responsiveness and some disagreement. We also show that in the presence of asset purchases, forward guidance anchors expectations more effectively. We rationalize our findings with a rational expectations model with noisy market information, where the precision of the market signal depends on how strongly agents respond to their own private information, which becomes less relevant after forward guidance.

    Konferenz Financial Cycles and Regulation

    Deutsche Bundesbank – LOEWE Center Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe (SAFE) – The German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) – The Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH) cordially invite to a joint conference:

    The recent Global Financial Crisis has highlighted the importance of financial cycles for macroeconomic and financial stability. While there is a widespread belief that credit and asset price cycles can affect both, there is no commonly accepted definition of the financial cycle and the analytical tools to describe it. In recent years, regulatory authorities in many coun-tries have introduced new macroprudential policy instruments with the aim of dampening financial cycles and addressing systemic risk. Given the limited agreement on the character-istics and measurement of financial cycles, it seems important to revisit current modelling strategies. The latter includes the interaction between financial and business cycles and be-tween different regulatory and stabilization policies. Since various regulatory measures (e.g., the countercyclical capital buffer) directly relate to the state of the financial cycle, a thorough understanding of the underlying macroeconomic concepts is a fundamental prerequisite for their successful application. The aim of the conference is to improve our understanding of the nature of financial cycles and to discuss the corresponding analytical challenges and implications for macroprudential policy and financial regulation. The conference is also an opportunity for an exchange of views of researchers and policymakers on the usefulness of regulatory measures.

    SOEPcampus CNEF Workshop 2018 at DIW Berlin

    For the first time, the DIW Berlin will host an international workshop on longitudinal data management and analysis. In contrast to our regular German SOEP-workshops, this course will be specifically devoted to comparative longitudinal and cross-country designs with the SOEP and its international sister household-panels. After an in-depth introduction to the SOEP and on general issues in longitudinal data handling, the second part of the workshop will be devoted to the US-American Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID). The SOEP and the PSID have many topics and structural features in common, while the respective countries differ in many institutional and compositional features. Therefore, these two datasets are particularly fruitful for empirical cross-country analyses. This potential is additionally stipulated by the provision of several key variables in a harmonized form in the so-called cross-national equivalent files (CNEF). The third part of the course therefore will be devoted to the CNEF-project. It will give an overview on the range of harmonized variables, contributing countries and on issues of data-access. We will also discuss examples of research questions that lead to cross-country designs and limitations of the CNEF data. Additionally, the course will deal with the key analytical cross-country designs.

    Schedule

    Day 1: Introduction to longitudinal data management and analysis on the basis of the Socio-economic Panel Study (SOEP). Lecture and hands-on sessions (Marco Giesselmann, DIW Berlin and Bielefeld University).

    Day 2: Introduction to the PSID. Lecture and hands-on sessions (Paula Fomby, University of Michigan)

    Day 3: Using the CNEF as basis for cross-country designs. Potentials, Problems and applications. Lecture (TBC) and hands-on sessions (Marco Giesselmann)   

    Registration & Requirements

    This workshop aims at doctoral students, post-docs and senior researchers, who currently carry out or are planning studies with the SOEP or other household panel data. We specifically want to encourage scholars with a strong interest in the impact of country-specific characteristics on subjective or objective individual conditions to participate in the workshop. Participants shall be familiar with stata and basic quantitative methods. Admission to the workshop will be granted on a first-come basis. The participation fee will be 60 Euros. Registration will be open from June 4th, 12 a.m. (CET).

    For questions on registration and organization,
    please contact Christine Kurka ().

    Workshop Stupsen und Schubsen (Nudging): Ein neues verhaltensbasiertes Regulierungskonzept?

    Nudging ist ein Politikkonzept, das individuelles Verhalten durch leichte „Stupser“ beeinflussen und damit (subtil) lenken möchte. Das Konzept gilt als vielversprechender Ansatz, um den individuellen und gesellschaftlichen Wohlstand positiv zu beeinflussen, ohne die individuelle Entscheidungsfreiheit einzuschränken. Bekannte Nudges sind Vereinfachung, verbesserte Transparenz sowie Warnhinweise oder Erinnerungen. Auch das Setzen einer Opt-out-Option anstelle eines Opt-in gilt als ein typischer Nudge.

    Im Fokus des Workshops steht das Politikkonzept des Nudgings. Diskutiert werden der Begriff und das Konzept: Was sind Nudges, was nicht? Welche Annahmen zum Verhalten von Verbraucherinnen und Verbraucher liegen dem Konzept des Nudging zugrunde? Welche Nudges werden in welchen Politikfeldern implementiert und welche Ziele werden adressiert? Welche Hemmnisse und Hürden hat das Politikkonzept? Was ist mit ethischen Aspekten von Nudging: Was ist mit Zielkonflikten, mit der Balance zwischen Individuum und Gesellschaft und zwischen Wohlergehen und Freiheit?

    Zu diesen Fragen im Kontext des Politikkonzeptes Nudging gibt das DIW Berlin zwei Vierteljahrshefte zur Wirtschaftsforschung heraus, die im dritten Quartal 2018 erscheinen. Autorinnen und Autoren aus diesen beiden Heften stellen in unserem Workshop ihre Beiträge vor und wir diskutieren sie mit allen Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern.

    Der Workshop wendet sich an Politik, Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft. Bitte beachten Sie, dass die Teilnehmerzahl auf 30 Personen limitiert ist und deshalb eine Teilnahme nur nach vorheriger Registrierung möglich ist. Bitte richten Sie Ihre Anmeldung bis zum 13. November 2018 per E-Mail an .
