BackgroundEmployment Impact Assessments (EmpIA) are a key element to support policy design and policy making. Increasingly, practitioners plan and base their actions on EmpIA exercises which improve understanding of what works, when, where and how. The increasing availability of data and impact studies provides more evidence on what works. In particular, it has been made possible by the emergence of meta analyses or systematic reviews, where multiple impact studies are assessed.
In recent years, there have been several meta analyses in areas such as active labour market policies and youth employment. Yet, evidence remains limited on interventions to promote the transition to formality, where policy debates are intense.
Objective of the seminarThe purpose of the seminar is to discuss the effectiveness of interventions to reduce informality based on a recent systematic review of impact studies
