Better Jobs for Development: 2020 Jobs and Development Conference
Following the success of the 2016, 2018 and 2019 Jobs and Development Conferences in Washington DC and Bogotá, the World Bank, the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA), the Network on Jobs and Development and UNU-WIDER are organizing a follow-up conference focused on ‘Development for Better Jobs’. The conference will be held online on 1-4 September 2020.
The four-day conference will feature keynote speeches, a policy panel, and about 80 paper presentations. Except for the keynote speeches, each session will last around one hour and consist of six presentations, including time for questions and answers. Presentations are planned to be 10-minute-long flash-talks with three slides. There will be three or four sessions each day scheduled accordingly to the time zones of speakers.
