Sixth International ASTRIL Conference – The Labour Market in a Time of Crisis, Inflation and Deglobalisationand YSI Pre-conference @ ASTRIL 2023

18 – 19 – 20 January 2023 – Roma Tre University Department of Economics

ASTRIL and the Department of Economics of Roma Tre University, jointly with INAPP, AIEL, EAEPE and the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence ‘Labour, Welfare and Social Rights in Europe’ organizes the 6th International Astril Conference – “The Labour Market in a Time of Crisis, Inflation and Deglobalisation”. The Conference will take place on 19 and 20 January 2023 at the Department of Economics and will be organized in a blended mode (virtual + localized).

After two years marked by the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, the war in Ukraine and the strong upswing in commodity and energy prices have fuelled further concerns over international financial stability and prospects for economic growth. How to tackle inflation, economic stagnation, further social polarisation, the restructuring of value chains and increasing private and public debts are all topics that are at the centre of current economic policy debates and dilemmas, the answers to which will affect the population’s living standards in the near future. In particular, the issue of how to minimise the fall in income growth and defend the purchasing power of wages against inflation has replaced the worry over the last fifteen years over deflation driving economic policies. The Sixth International ASTRIL Conference aims to bring together works in these fields on both theoretical and empirical grounds.

The YSI Pre-conference @ ASTRIL 2023 will take place on January 18.
