12 October 2018 to 15 February 2019 Graduate Center Courses Economic Policy

Researchers face the challenge to translate their academic results to policy makers and to the public. Often the results are derived using complex theoretical or empirical models, which are based on strong assumptions. Therefore, it is necessary to develop methods and skills, which allow to explain the models and the assumptions to policy makers and to derive results and policy conclusions based on the models.

This course provides an introduction to policy analysis and to evidence-based policy advice.

Course registration is closed.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Parental leave and mothers' careers

    This paper analyzes the impact of the German Parental Leave Reform on mothers' careers in the long run. To identify the causal effect, we use a difference-in-difference approach that compares labor market outcomes of mothers who gave birth just before and right after the reform and net out seasonal effects by including the year before. Using the total population of the Integrated Employment Biographies, we observe that high-income mothers return later to the labor market. In contrast, we do not observe changes in the average duration of the employment interruptions for low income mothers. Seven to nine years after birth, we do not find effects on wages nor on the probability to hold a leadership positions for neither of the two groups. The result suggests that the longer career breaks for high-income mothers do not have negative effects on their subsequent careers.

    Event 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.
