Berlin Network of Labour Market Researchers: Many participants in lecture series with Joseph Altonji

Bericht vom 7. Juni 2012

This year’s Lecture series of the Berlin Network of Labour Market Researchers (BeNA) took place on 23 and 24 April with support from the DIW Berlin and in particular the Socio-Economic Panel. The lecture was held by Professor Joseph Altonji (Yale University) on the topic „Dealing with Selection on Unobservables“. Most of the more than 70 participants came from Berlin (students, PhD-students, and Post-Docs). In addition, we welcomed participants from Germany and abroad. In particular:
  • Berlin: Berlin Graduate School for Transnational Studies (BTS), DIW, FU Berlin, Hertie School of Governance, Berlin School of Economics and Law, HU Berlin, Institut des Bewertungsausschusses, RWI (Büro Berlin), TU Berlin, WZB;
  • Germany: Bamberg (Uni), Bonn (IZA), Erlangen-Nürnberg (Uni), Essen (RWI), Frankfurt (Uni), Magdeburg (Uni), München (ifo), Nürnberg (IAB), Potsdam (Uni), Saarbrücken (Uni), Trier (Uni);
  • from abroad: Canada, England, Holland, Italy, Poland.
Professor Altonji presented an important method both intuitively as well as theoretically on a highly academic level. With seven office hour slots and five lecture sessions in two days, Professor Altonji's schedule was quite demanding. Nevertheless, he and his wife enjoyed their stay in Berlin very much.

We are happy to provide you with additional information and material – including a video-stream of the lecture series, pictures and the flyer – that is now available at the BeNA Website (see link).

The Berlin Network of Labour Market Researchers would particularly like to thank those institutions that made this event possible with their financial support: DIW, HU-Berlin, RWI, SOEP, WZB, and the Hertie School of Governance.
