The conference „Evaluation of Minimum Wages“ will be held at DIW in Berlin on July 4 and 5, 2018. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for the most recent research on the effects of minimum wages. While the focus will be on the situation in Germany—after the introduction of the national statutory minimum wage in 2015—we also seek empirical contributions from other countries or papers with a theoretical focus or methodological advancements. The keynote lecture will be given by Prof. Dr. David Neumark (University of California, Irvine).
Scientific committee and organizers:
Marco Caliendo (University of Potsdam),
Carsten Schröder (SOEP/DIW Berlin and FU Berlin),
Jürgen Schupp (SOEP/DIW Berlin and FU Berlin),
Alexandra Fedorets (SOEP/DIW Berlin),
Lutz Bellmann (IAB Nuremberg).
