Labour market

How do digital and the green transformation affect the labour market? What are patterns of cross-border mobility and how do immigrants integrate in the host country? How do social and economic policies impact the functioning of the labour market and other social indicators like health or inequality?

The Department relies on a broad set of approaches and methods ranging from the social sciences (economics, sociology, political science) to law, history, statistics and computer science. The toolbox includes microeconomic models, microeconometrics, policy evaluation, mixed and qualitative methods, experimental approaches, participatory research, machine learning and data science. In collaboration with the Information Systems Platform, we run surveys and experiments both offline and online, conduct interviews or focus groups, and make use of machine learning and high-powered computing.

A word from our Director of department, Christina Gathmann

The main goals of the Labour Market department are research excellence on Luxembourg, Europe and beyond; having an impact on policy-makers and society at large; and being a highly valued cooperation partner.

The Labour Market Department centres its activities around four core areas:

  • The impact of the digital and green transformation on the human capital base, job quality and skill needs;
  • The analysis of worker mobility and regional labour markets, in particular the Grande Region;
  • Evaluations of social and economic policies affecting the labour market;
  • Investigating differential opportunities and outcomes across workers

Our work is closely linked with activities in the Centre of Competence for Data Science and Simulation (DSS) and the Centre of Competence for Participatory and Experimental Research (EXPAR). We also work closely with the Research Programs on Crossing Borders (CB) and Health and Health Systems (HHS) as well as the Living Conditions Department.

Under the leadership of its new head, the Labour Market Department has launched several initiatives to advance its research excellence. Examples include:

  • Annual LUX-ERC Workshop to bring recent winners of prestigious European Research Council grants to Luxembourg;
  • Coordinator of the European Network of Labour Market Research Institutes;
  • A visiting program for collaborations, exchange and mentoring activities;
  • Improve data infrastructure to access national and international administrative data;
  • A regular meeting of labour economists in Luxembourg to discuss current research;
  • An internal reading group to provide feedback on research papers;

We work together with a large number of actors and institutions in Luxembourg, other European countries and beyond.
