The aim of this colloquium is to bring together research and researchers in different fields dealing with labour markets and collective bargaining.
We therefore invite young scholars, including graduate students, in economics, political science, law and economics, sociology, economic history, and related fields to submit proposals for a cross disciplinary colloquium/workshop to be held in Stockholm in August 2009.
In addition to paper sessions there will be two plenary sessions, one of which will be given by Franz Traxler, professor Institut fÃ¼r Wirtschaftssoziologie at the University of Vienna. Professor Lars Magnusson, at the Department of Economic History Uppsala University, will give the other.
We especially welcome papers dealing with the following areas:
*Decentralized bargaining and its effects
*Labour-market conflicts in the global economy
*The role of the state in the labour market
*The competing labour-market models
*The role of cartels in the labour market
*Insiders and outsiders in the labour market
Both theoretical and empirical papers are considered. The papers submitted are expected to be work in progress: More than ideas, but still unpublished papers. The 2009 Ratio Young Scientist Award is awarded to the best paper presented at the colloquium. The winning author will receive 1000 Euro in award.
The number of accepted papers is limited to 18. The conference and accommodation will be free of charge, and we will reimburse travel expenses. Discussants will be appointed, but all participants are expected to read all papers. An application consists of the following:
â€¢ A one or two page abstract of the paper
â€¢ A one page summary of your research interests

Deadline for applications is March 9, 2009. The conference is arranged by The Ratio Institute, an independent research institute in Stockholm. www.ratio.se
