Summer School on Labor Economics:
The course provides theoretical and empirical approaches of the latest developments in labor economics. The sessions will be divided between the presentation of the main theoretical results and empirical applications, wherever possible using the Portuguese labor market and Longitudinal Employer-Employee Data.

The reference articles will be made available to the students. Students who do not have preparation in labor economics at the undergraduate level, or who want a simple review of some topics should read Ehrenberg and Smith, Modern Labor Economics, Addison-Wesley. At a deeper level the book Labor Economics by Pierre Cahuc and André Zylberberg, MIT Press, is a good reference.

Syllabus:
I. Labor Economics: a brief review of some important issues
II. Human Capital, self-selection and performance
III. Job mobility and wages
IV. Agency problems, incentives and insurance
V. Unemployment: an introduction
