This course provides students with theoretical and empirical tools that labor economics uses to analyze job seekers’ and firm’s behavior. The course explores standard models (models of labor supply and demand, equilibrium search and matching models, etc.), which are at the core of contemporary analyses of the labor market. The objective of the course is to give an understanding of current economic and social issues on the labor market (such as gender inequalities, minimum wages, youth unemployment, etc.), and to deal with the implementation of public policies aimed at improving employment or increasing welfare. The course aims to equip students who would like to pursue in the academic sector as researchers, or to work for national or international institutions as economists or research managers.
