San Servolo, Venice, 27 June - 2 July 2022
CESifo, in cooperation with Venice International University, will host its twenty-first Summer Institute in Venice, Italy, bringing together international economists working on economic policy topics. The conference venue is San Servolo, an island just off San Marco in the bay of Venice, that offers an ideal setting for an intensive exchange of ideas in a relaxed atmosphere.
Venice Summer Institute Workshops offered:
Emergence and Dynamics of Personality and Attitudes over the Life Cycle
27 - 28 June 2022
In light of persistent heterogeneity in economic outcomes at the individual and aggregate level, the role of heterogeneity in personality, attitudes and preferences has gained increasing attention in economics. The patterns of formation, stability, and dynamics of personality are still not well understood, however. The symposium will provide a unique forum for discussing state of the art research on the emergence of personality traits and attitudes, on their life cycle dynamics, on heterogeneity in their evolution across individuals and populations, and on the social and economic implications of these factors at the individual and aggregate levels.
The Role of Firms in Migration Research
27 - 28 June 2022
The role of firms is important for our understanding of the economic effects of migration. Firms can influence the selection of migrants and their labor market integration. Vice versa, migrants can affect firm organization, productivity, innovation, and technology diffusion. The important implications of this research can help improve our understanding of firm performance, inequality, and may help design more efficient and economically driven immigration policies.
The Organization and the Geography of Work in the Post-Pandemic Economy
29 - 30 June 2022
The Covid-19 shock has rattled the world economy, disrupting traditional work arrangement at an unprecedented scale. This workshop asks to what extent work is persistently reorganized in the post-pandemic economy and explores the consequences of these adjustments. Will remote, hybrid and work-from-anywhere arrangements become an integral part of firms and industries globally? Does the post-pandemic economy perform better or worse with respect to productivity, job satisfaction, regional, gender and social inequality? Will work-from-anywhere change the geography of work, and alter migration and return migration flows and the global distribution of talent? We look forward to bringing together theoretical and empirical contributions on these timely questions.
Economics of Education and Equality of Opportunity
29 - 30 June 2022
Although there has been a dramatic improvement in education systems across the world, there still is vast inequality in terms of access and learning in both developed and developing countries. This workshop will specifically address the current challenges from a policy standpoint and focus on equality of opportunity. In addition, the consequences of the Covid-19 induced school closures for educational equality will be discussed.
Please note: Participation at this workshop is by invitation only.
Using Novel Methods and Data in Applied Microeconomic Research
1 - 2 July 2022
Increased availability of granular data and advances in data analysis are rapidly changing the way economic research is conducted. The workshop will bring together researchers at the frontier of methodological development and early adopters of these methods and data.
