Call for Proposals
Labor Demand in the MENA Region

ERF invites affiliates and non-ERF affiliates to submit proposals investigating labor demand in the MENA region. Currently, there is a growing understanding of the supply side of MENA labor markets and of the functioning of labor markets thanks to the availability of the different labor market survey data and household income and consumption surveys. However, there is still a gap in understanding the demand side of the labor market, due to limitations in the availability to researchers of firm-level data. Deadline for submissions: October 15, 2015.
