The Impact of Public Policies on Labor Markets
and Income Distribution

AUGUST 21-23, 2018 | Tampere, Finland

Welcome to Tampere!

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 74th Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance (IIPF 2018)!

The congress theme is The Impact of Public Policies on Labor Markets and Income Distribution. In line with this theme, the aim of the congress is to provide a venue for presenting and discussing cutting-edge research in public economics, especially including research at the intersection of public economics and labor economics.  As is traditional at IIPF Congresses, the program includes presentations from a wide range of topics in all areas of public economics.

In addition to plenary lectures by Gordon B. Dahl (University of California, San Diego), Henrik Kleven (Princeton University), Uta Schönberg (University College London), and Petra Todd (University of Pennsylvania), there will be 101 contributed-paper sessions with 366 papers that address a wide range of policy-relevant public finance issues using state-of-the art methods. The program features scholars from around the world, and promises to be both stimulating and informative.

We look forward to seeing you in Tampere and wish you all an enjoyable and productive congress!
