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).

LACEA has established itself as the leading association of economists interested in the problems of economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean. We have contributed to strengthening ties between the research community and economic decision makers in the region and we have fostered debate and dissemination of better economic and social policies based on economic research. Yet, during the last few years, we struggled to find a permanent sponsor, who would help us maintain these activities. Therefore, we kindly ask you to help us make LACEA financially sustainable for the years to come. Please take one minute to donate. Every contribution counts. Thank you!
