The American Economic Association (AEA), in conjunction with 58 associations in related disciplines known as the Allied Social Sciences Associations (ASSA), holds a three-day meeting each January to present papers on general economics topics. The event which is the largest meeting of academic economists in the world typically brings together more than 13,000 individuals from all parts of the world.
ASSA 2018 takes place in Philadelphia on January 5 -7.
The Global Labor Organization (GLO) is an international, independent, non-partisan and non-governmental organization that has no institutional position. The GLO functions as global network and virtual platform for researchers, policy makers, practitioners and the general public interested in scientific research and its policy and societal implications on global labor markets, demographic challenges and human resources.
Many GLO Fellows are at ASSA to present their work and engage in academic exchange and informal meetings. GLO President Klaus F. Zimmermann (UNU-MERIT, Maastricht and Bonn University) is also present to discuss and develop GLO issues.
