The Labor Network (LN) is the most recent of the LACEA’S networks. It was created in 2013 by a group of members of the Association interested in improving the dissemination of ideas in the specific area of Labor Economics. In particular, the network was established to focus on labor markets in Latin America, and in particular, the nexus of Employment, Productivity and Skills and is envisaged as a way of way of sharing learning in the region, articulating new agendas for research, and creating consensus around necessary policy interventions. 

Labor Network's head is Sergio Urzua ( University of Maryland).
