Globalization and Labor Market Outcomes

Keio University - FFJ Collaborative

The impact of globalization—through foreign direct investment (FDI) and international trade—on domestic labor markets is a very active field of research, at the intersection of international economics and labor economics. In particular, it has led economists to revisit the analysis of the determinants of wage inequality by focusing on the heterogeneity of corporate international engagement. This research also addresses the causes of increasing employment insecurity and the impact on inequalities through this channel. More generally, it is central to the analysis of structural changes in labor markets and in the design of public policies to tackle them.

In continuity with the publication in 2015 of a special issue of Review of World Economics (Volume151, Number 3) entitled "Globalization and labor market outcomes: de-industrialization, job security, and wage inequalities", the purpose of this workshop is to gather leading scholars in this field of research and to contribute to a better understanding of these key issues for our economies and societies.
