Family, labor supply and mobility decisions are closely intertwined, thus a comprehensive research approach is needed to analyze them. Our mission is to develop such an agenda, promoting research activities at the crossroads of family, labor and migration economics.
The output of our research program launched in 2020/21 is published in international scientific (peer-reviewed) journals, in our IFLAME Working Paper Series, as well as in media articles/ or interviews, which are focussed on the contents of our research activity, accessible to a non-technical interested audience.
