The OECD Employment, Labour and Social Affairs Directorate has launched in September 2008 a series of seminars open to both external and internal speakers. It is intended to be an informal forum for discussion of policy-oriented empirical research work among policy-makers, academics and OECD staff. The Seminars Series covers a broad range of topics including labour, social, migration and health issues.
Seminars last for 1 hour and 15 minutes and usually take place in the OECD Conference Centre. Those wishing to attend please send a request to: ELS.Seminars@oecd.org
