    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Inequality amid income stagnation: Italy over the last quarter of a century

    The paper analyses the evolution of inequality in Italy from 1989 to 2014, focusing on three business-cycle phases: the 1992 currency crisis, the moderate growth from 1993 to 2007, and the double-dip recession from 2008 to 2013. Data from the national accounts and the Bank of Italy’s Survey on Household Income and Wealth are used. Results show that income inequality, as measured by the Gini coefficient, rose sharply during the recession of the early 1990s but much less during the recent double-dip recession, though the share of people at risk of poverty rose similarly during the two crises. The stability of (synthetic) distributive inequality measures is explained by the fact that the reduction in income during the double-dip recession hit the whole population. Despite this apparent stability, two changes stand out: the widening gap between the young and the elderly and the fact that the deterioration in living conditions was borne wholly by households whose primary earner was foreign born.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy The role of trade policy for implementing the Paris Agreement

    Trade policy has been in the headline news throughout this year. At the same time, trade policy is capturing increasing attention in international climate policy debates, for example regarding the responsibilities of consumers for carbon embodied in imports, or concerns of producers how national policy regimes can be designed to guide a transition to climate neutrality in a highly competitive world. Moreover, references to the Paris Agreement in the negotiations of EU trade deals are en vogue and being implemented.

    Here are useful links on these topics:

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen How did EU Eastern enlargement affect the Austrian labor market?

    In recent years, there has been growing public and political opposition against the principle of free movement of labor within the European Union. Already before the first EU Eastern enlargement in 2004, potential adverse labor market effects for natives in the old EU Member States were widely discussed. Despite these discussions, there is little ex-post research on the impact of EU Eastern enlargement on old Member States' labor markets. In our paper, we want to study how the EU Eastern enlargement affected the Austrian labor market. First, we provide a descriptive analysis of the development of labor supply from the new EU Member States in the Austrian labor market with a focus on the period around their EU entry and free labor market access. Second, we want to exploit the observed patterns in immigration from the EU8 countries that joined in 2004 to identify the effect on the Austrian labor market. More precisely, we want to use variation in the EU8 worker density on the community level over time and over the distance to the closest EU8 border. We find that the share of EU8 employees among all employees in Austria increased by a factor of four from 2003 to 2015. With free access, we see a shift in the composition of migrant workers toward lower-qualified and younger groups. We can further show that the inflow of EU8 employment over time is larger in communities closer to the border.

    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.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Mentoring of Refugees - A randomized controlled trial with refugees and locals in Germany

    In the randomized controlled trial "Mentoring of Refugees", refugees participating in the 2017 wave of the IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees were asked about their interest in participating in a mentoring program. Those who declared their interest were randomly selected into treatment and control groups. The treatment group received a spot in a mentoring program. The mentoring program was organized by the social startup “Start with a Friend,” which is active in 14 German cities in which panel respondents were present.The startup connects recently arrived refugees with local counterparts who already live in Germany (most of these so-called “locals” are German citizens) to form friendships. The locals were recruited by Start with a Friend and answered three waves of a survey we administered at different stages of the mentoring relationship (before the first meeting, after six weeks, and after four months). With these data sources, we dispose of a unique data set to study mentoring processes as well as the impacts of these on refugees' integration.
    In our presentation, we will present the implementation of the randomized control trial, first results regarding the interest in participating in a mentoring initiative as well as challenges identified and lessons learned

    Veranstaltung Work in Transition: How Demography, Technology and Migration are altering the Economy

    EBRD's Transition Report 2018-19

    Life expectancy is rapidly increasing, jobs are becoming automated and people are moving in large numbers across borders and into urban areas. How are demographic change, technology and migration simultaneously shaping future economic growth and jobs? Ralph De Haas, Director of Research at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, will explore this question through findings in the recently launched EBRD's Transition Report 2018-19, which analyses data on adult skills, the use of industrial robots, and asylum seekers in Europe, followed by a panel discussion.

    Panelists:
    Ralph De Haas is the Director of Research at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). He is also a part-time Associate Professor of Finance at Tilburg University and a Fellow at the European Banking Center. His research interests include global banking, development finance, and development economics more widely.

    Marius Clemens  is Research Associate in the Forecasting and Economic Policy Department at DIW Berlin. His current research focuses on the medium-term business cycle, the growth and distributional effects of European labour market integration as well as the effects of fiscal policy. 

    Moderator:
    Mareike Kleine is Professor of Global and European Governance at the Hertie School of Governance for the academic year 2018/2019 and Associate Professor of EU and International Politics at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her research interests include international organisations, EU politics and integration, the dynamics between domestic politics and international institutions, international and comparative political economy, informal governance, and normative questions of global governance.
