At the cutting edge of labor market research

With our local team and global network, we conduct pioneering research in labor economics. Our topics cover all facets of the future of work, currently focusing on the socioeconomic consequences of the globalCOVID-19 pandemic。深入的实证研究是我们为政策制定者,企业和社会提供的独立建议的基础。我们工作的关键目标是将新知识从学术科学转移到公众辩论中。IZA利用我们内部研究团队与我们的国际学者网络之间的协同作用,为在劳动力市场研究的最前沿创建了一个独特的科学交流平台。

Our in-house research agenda is made up of four overarching topics: (1) Changing World of Work, (2) Workers of the Future, (3) Sustainable Labor Policies, (4) Work and Social Cohesion.

Our local research teams analyze challenges for the future of work related to digitalization, new skill requirements, institutional change, and the impact of innovative labor market policies.

While pursuing our own ambitious research agenda, we also provide in-depth scientific analyses for national and international policy institutions as an independent, nonpartisan entity.

IZA coordinates and supports the world’s largest research network in labor economics, comprising more than 1,600 scholars from over 60 countries. Our extensive network activities are the cornerstone of our success.


We offer a wide range of publications that cater to both an academic and a general audience. Below we present new findings, focusing on COVID-19 research:
