Family Economics and Family Policy


The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) is pleased to announce a workshop on family economics and family policy. The objective of the workshop is to bring together 15–20 economists and scholars in related fields of research from Europe and overseas.

We welcome empirical and theoretical contributions addressing topics related to the family. One focus of the workshop is the design and impact of family policies, in particular with respect to family choices (e.g. fertility, childcare, labour supply, family structure). We are also interested in studies that contribute to understanding interactions between family behaviour and general economic and political developments, such as technological change, the housing market or youth unemployment.

Keynote Speaker

  • Anders Björklund (Swedish Institute for Social Research, Stockholm University)
  • Michèle Tertilt (University of Mannheim)
