Abstract

The Institute for Employment Research (IAB) and the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) are pleased to announce an international workshop on the task-based approach. The evolution of skill demand and wage structures in recent decades continues to motivate economic and sociological research. A growing body of the literature acknowledges that traditional labor demand models based on the differentiation between one or two skill-categories are ill-suited to explain recent labor market developments. In contrast, the predictions from task-based approaches typically are much better in line with the empirical evidence.

This workshop invites empirical and theoretical contributions using the task-based approach from all areas of labor market research and related fields such as the educational research, industrial economics, international comparisons, or public finance.
