Invitation to the 2022 LIS Summer Lecture on “The geography of income mobility”

LIS is happy to invite you to its 2022 Summer Lecture on “The geography of income mobility” By Cecilia García-Peñalosa, Aix Marseille School of Economics. The lecture will take place on Monday, July 4th, 2022 11:30-12:30 [Luxembourg Local Time] Esch-Belval Luxembourg.

Economists have long been interested in inter-generational mobility. Initial explanations based on easily-identifiable factors such as educational attainment have overtime been expanded to include aspects such as non-cognitive skills and, more recently, geography. Where you are born matters for mobility. This talk will explore recent evidence showing that there are significant differences in the degree of upwards mobility across location, and try to identify to what extent broad developments in the labour market, such as employment polarization, are behind these differences.


Those interested in attending the lecture should register via this link before the 25th of June 2022 as seats are limited.
The lecture will be followed by a Buffet lunch.
