Labor/Applied Microeconomics

Labour economists investigate a wide range of questions aimed at understanding how labour markets work, and how public policies may interact with labour market choices and outcomes. Labour economics is a growing field at the University of Gothenburg, with a number of international hires in the last five years. We currently have three professors, one associate professor, and five assistant professors and post-docs.

Research interests in the group are diverse and currently emphasize the following sub-topics of labour economics: economics of education, economics of crime, discrimination, peer effects and networks, early life interventions, intergenerational mobility, job search and matching, and welfare participation. These questions are studied in numerous countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Romania, using methods ranging from structural and reduced form econometrics to field experiments.
