IZA is a platform committed to advancing high-quality research on the role of labor markets for economic inequality, and the behavioral aspects influencing these areas. Our mission encompasses scientific policy advice, the active transfer of current knowledge, and the promotion of young talent. IZA combines its global networks of over 2,000 distinguished economists from 60 countries and a group of dedicated researchers in its local campus in Bonn, Germany. This collaborative effort of IZA’s network and its local team fosters an inclusive and highly productive research environment that contributes to bridging the gap between scientific inquiry and societal impact. IZA’s scholarly activities are coordinated by Research Directors Ingo Isphording and Florian Zimmermann, supported by a Network Advisory Panel which represents a range of diverse viewpoints and constituencies, including a mix of different seniorities within the profession.
