The Edge: home of the WPEG conference

Work, Pensions and Labour Economics Study Group (WPEG)

We are the UK labour economics and pensions study group. Our primary function is to foster, promote and disseminate research in labour economics, pensions, and related research areas (including poverty, housing and savings).

I am pleased to announce that the annual WPEG conference will take place from Thursday 27th to Friday 28th July 2017 at “The Edge” at the University of Sheffield. Financial support for the 2017 and the 2018 annual conferences will be provided by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The 2017 plenary address will be given by Professor Thomas Crossley (University of Essex and Research Fellow IFS).
