G²LM|LIC proudly announces the launch of the new book “Labour Markets in Low-Income Countries: Challenges and Opportunities” by David Lam and Ahmed Elsayed. It addresses some of the most important issues affecting labour markets in low-income countries. The book builds heavily on new research evidence that has been provided by the programme on Growth and Labour Markets in Low-Income Countries (GLM|LIC), which was created as a partnership between the UK Department for International Development (now part of the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office) and the German IZA – Institute of Labor Economics in 2011. The programme has contributed to the growing interest in understanding labour markets in the poorest countries by producing high-quality research outputs and policy documents, as well as through interactions with various stakeholders and impacts on programmes and policies.
The event will bring together researchers and policy makers to discuss different topics related to labour markets in low-income countries. You can register for the online book launch event here.
