ERSA-CORE/UCL Workshop - A Great Success!

Everyone really enjoyed all the presentations and the interaction from the participants which was stimulated by the enthusiasm from the Chair of the Workshop -prof Jacques Thisse.

The Panel discussion (Chaired by prof. Jouke van Dijk) was an interesting conclusion for the workshop. The discussion between both academic and policy makers from the European Commission and the OECD brought an interesting debate relating to the various models of the labour market situation across Europe.

Even in the breaks many people were interacting with each other. This allowed people to gather further insight & networking in helping them with their own labour / unemployment projects.

.........interesting and informative and - in my case with regard to a youth unemployment project that I am working on - very timely too! (A. Tubadji)
