|Description:||ZEW Workshop Education and Equality of Opportunity - Centre for European Economic Research|
|Location:||Mannheim, ZEW, Germany|
|Subject:||Educational inequalities have attracted growing interest in research as well as in the political debate due to the increased relevance of cognitive and non-cognitive skills on the labour market. Educational and social policies with the goal to reduce educational inequality and to achieve a better educational performance over the life cycle for all are thus central issues in the ongoing political and scientific debate. The aim of this conference is to give researchers in this area an opportunity to present their latest empirical results and to exchange ideas. We invite empirical contributions from education economics or psychology. Preference will be given to contributions from PhD students and post-doc researchers providing experimental or quasi-experimental evidence on ways to reduce educational inequalities.
