Abstract

Access to education and training; wage inequality and employment opportunities; the stability of social security systems; and social participation are ever-present issues in the public debate. In addition, questions surrounding the integration of refugees and the transformation of work through digitalisation have moved into sharp focus. With this international, interdisciplinary symposium the IAB aims to illuminate the research findings relevant to these debates, as well as discuss the challenges for the labour market and the political options for action.

The event will take place in Berlin on the 5th and 6th April 2017. We warmly invite you to an interesting and intensive exchange between experts from science, politics, and practice on these key socio-political fields of action. 

We would also be delighted to welcome you as a guest to the 50th anniversary celebration ceremony in the early evening of April the 5th, 2017.
