The JRC, together with the Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, is organising the conference "Counterfactual Methods for Policy Impact Evaluation (COMPIE)", taking place in Rome, on November 27–28 2014.

 

This is an institutional event of the Italian Semester of Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

 

Keynote speakers include Jochen Kluve (Humboldt-Universität Berlin), and Steve Pischke (London School of Economics).

 

Objectives

The aim is to discuss developments in counterfactual methods applied to the impact evaluation of policy interventions, with a focus on employment, social and education policies. This is in line with the emphasis on evidence-based policy-making in the EU 2014-20 programming period.

 

The main policy areas of interest are – but are not confined to – labour market, social and education policies, both in Europe and elsewhere. Special emphasis will be given to contributions that link Counterfactual Impact Evaluations to improvements in the design of policy interventions.
