IZA Research


Research at IZA is organized in a number of different research areas that together span a wide array of labor market research. These research areas function as umbrellas for individual projects with a common thread. Such projects are often initiated by IZA Research Fellows or IZA's in-house researchers, but they also include commissioned studies for national or regional governments. By means of international cooperation and organizing workshops targeted to these projects, existing expertise throughout the international research community is brought together. The synergy resulting from these interactions has proven very successful..
