The inaugural conference 2017:
The inaugural conference of the AASLE brought together over 400 researchers and over 120 papers from around the world and was hosted by the Australian National University Research School of Economics in Canberra, Australia, from 7-9 December 2017. The event had been impressive and was a huge success.
The event was organized by Christian Dustmann, University College London; Bob Gregory, Australian National University and GLO; Xin Meng, Australian National University and GLO; John Tang, Australian National University; and Matthew Gray, Australian National University.
The Global Labor Organization (GLO) had early on welcomed this initiative and has supported it through a special GLO session. A large number of GLO Fellows were participating in the event and were presenting papers in other sessions. The session was chaired by GLO Country Lead Australia, John Haisken-DeNew (Melbourne University).
