This course is based on a course given by Pierre Cahuc. It introduces the latest theoretical, methodological, and empirical developments in labour economics. It presents empirical methods (relevant for the policymakers) using contributions that have proved to be milestones in labour economics. Besides this knowledge, the students are supposed to learn how to analyse public policy. The analysis of public policy and the information available to policymakers, on such topics as discrimination, globalization, income redistribution, employment protection, and the minimum wage or labour market programs for the unemployed will allow fulfilling the learning goals.
