Call for Papers
The International Monetary Fund will hold the Thirteenth Jacques Polak Annual Research Conference at its headquarters in Washington DC on November 8-9, 2012.
The conference is intended to provide a forum for discussing innovative research in economics, undertaken by both IMF staff and by outside economists, and to facilitate the exchange of views among researchers and policymakers. Peter Diamond (MIT) will deliver the Mundell-Fleming lecture.
The theme of the conference is “Labor Markets through the Lens of the Great Recession.” The Program Committee welcomes papers that investigate the lessons of the crisis for labor market dynamics, as well as short-run and long-run policy challenges concerning employment growth and structural changes in labor markets in industrial and developing economies. Possible topics include (without being exclusive):
Comparative performance of labor markets in the crisis:
Unemployment and the Arab spring
Reforms, employment, and unemployment
Please submit a proposal (in Word or PDF format), which should be no shorter than two pages and no longer than five pages by June 8, 2012 (e-mail to ARC@imf.org). Please use the contact author’s name as the name of the file. The Program Committee will evaluate all proposals in terms of originality, analytical rigor, and policy relevance and will contact the authors whose papers have been selected by June 30, 2012. A 15-page work-in-progress draft will be required by August 15, 2012. Further information on the conference program will be posted on the IMF website (www.imf.org).
