The functioning of labor markets and their outcomes for social inequalities are strongly influenced by
market and non-market institutions. As a result, education and training systems, the human resource
management of firms, labor market segmentation, dualization, and the performance of entire labor
markets in terms of job creation, job quality and distributional equality diverge between countries and
economic sectors. The network welcomes contributions that help us understand that diversity. All topics
with that goal in mind are of interest. Recent topics include, for example, digitalization and jobs, formal
and informal work, wage dispersion, pay gaps, career trajectories, gender and other dimensions of
diversity and inclusion, professional and managerial labor markets, cross-border and migrant labor
markets. Contributions can be empirical or conceptual, qualitative or quantitative. The presentation of
work in progress and by early career researchers is especially welcome.

Researchers interested in presenting at the annual conference are invited to submit a full paper or an
extended abstract of 3 to 4 pages (approx. 1,500 to 2,000 words). The paper or the extended abstract
should include the research question as well as summaries of theory, methodology, and (preliminary)

Proposals for panel sessions are especially welcome, and require both a short summary of the topic as
well as extended abstracts of at least two single contributions. The network organizers encourage
proposals for semi-filled sessions, to which the organizers will add relevant individual submissions.
Proposals for roundtable discussion panels and author-meets-critics sessions are also welcome, and
should include a short summary of the goal and a list of possible participants.

Between SASE conferences, the network maintains a google group to ensure continuous exchange.
Members who are interested in joining the group can send an e-mail to any of the network organizers.
