    DIW Europe Lecture Strengthening the Euro Area Architecture
    Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund

    Following an outstanding private sector career in which she had served as the first Chairwoman of the international law firm Baker & McKenzie, Christine Lagarde joined the French Government in June 2005 as Trade Minister. After a brief stint as Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries, in June 2007 she became the first woman to hold the post of Finance and Economy Minister of a G-7 country. As Chair of the G-20 when France took over its presidency for the year 2011, she set in motion a wide-ranging work agenda on the reform of the international monetary system. On July 5, 2011, Christine Lagarde became the eleventh Managing Director of the IMF, the first woman in that position. In 2016, the IMF Executive Board selected her to serve for a second five-year term.

    The DIW Europe Lecture is a lecture series by leading policy-makers and academics on the future of Europe. The series aims at fostering and informing the debate on key European policy issues, and at bringing this debate to the heart of Germany's policy-making in Berlin. Previous Europe Lectures have been held by Mario Draghi, Barry Eichengreen and Lawrence H. Summers.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Nationale Energie- und Klimapläne nach der EU Governance-Verordnung: Wo steht der Prozess und was können die Pläne leisten?

    Damit die EU ihre Klima- und Energieziele für 2030 erfüllt, hat die Europäische Kommission einen neuen Weg eingeschlagen: Alle Mitgliedstaaten sollen im Jahr 2018 umfassende Energie- und Klimapläne für die Dekade 2020 bis 2030 erarbeiten. Zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt sollen außerdem langfristige Dekarbonisierungsstrategien entwickelt werden. Die Gesetzesgrundlage für die Pläne – die EU Governance-Verordnung – wird derzeit noch im Trialog zwischen Rat und Europäischem Parlament verhandelt.

    Anlässlich dieser wichtigen Verhandlungen  wollen wir mit Euch/Ihnen diskutieren, was die Energie- und Klimapläne leisten müssen, um tatsächlich eine umfassende Transformation der europäischen Volkswirtschaften anzustoßen. Eine zentrale Frage ist dabei, ob bzw. wie die Pläne glaubhafte, langfristige Signale an Investorinnen senden können. Inwiefern sind der vorgesehene Erarbeitungsprozess und die Überprüfung durch die EU-Kommission geeignet, um hohe Qualität und Konsistenz, aber auch die breite Akzeptanz der Pläne sicherzustellen? Welche Mechanismen gibt es, die Mitgliedsstaaten dazu verpflichten können, die Pläne ab 2020 dann auch umzusetzen und bei Bedarf anzupassen? In der Diskussion wollen wir zum einen kritische Punkte im noch laufenden Gesetzgebungsverfahren beleuchten und zum anderen die konkrete Ausarbeitung des 2030-Plans für Deutschland in den Blick nehmen.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions The Impact of Initial Placement Restrictions on Labor Market Outcomes of Refugees

    This paper analyzes employment effects of a policy reform that was introduced as a measure for targeted integration of foreigners into local labor markets in Germany. The Residence Rule puts additional constraints on initial residence decisions for refugees after having received a permanent residence permit. Given that this reform applies to a subset of refugees only, it creates exogenous variation that I exploit in a Differences-in-Differences analysis. Using a novel data set, the IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees in Germany, the results suggest a negative effect of the reform on the probability to take up employment. This effect is robust to the inclusion/exclusion of covariates. Yet, since sample size in the post-treatment period is relatively small, some specifications yield statistically insignificant effects.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Disappointed Hopes of Upward Mobility? A Study on Income Development in Germany 1995-2015

    Similar to many other OECD countries, income inequality in Germany has increased over the past decades. However, it is not yet clear to what extent there has actually been a decline at the household level. Our study therefore examines what is behind the increased income inequality: increases or decreases of household incomes or a change in the composition of the population. Using SOEP data from 1995-2015 and hybrid panel regressions, we show that income inequality increases between different educational groups and EGP-classes, as well as between migrants and Germans.
    Furthermore, we show that the increasing income inequality at the household level cannot be attributed solely to a change in the composition of the population, but that disadvantaged households have experienced lower increases in disposable household income over time than other households.
    These findings suggest that hopes of upward income mobility are increasingly disappointed among the more disadvantaged population groups in recent years.
