GLM | LIC Phase III invites applications for research projects in the following areas:
1. Growth and labor market outcomes
2. Active labor market policies
3. Labor market institutions
4. Migration and labor markets
5. Gender
6. Data for labor market analysis

The deadline for applications is October 29, 2013. Please visit glm-lic.iza.org for more information about the program and the call for proposals. The full Call Specifications can be downloaded here.

Projects funded in previous calls cover a wide range of low-income countries and focus on various topics, including the impacts of trade and globalization, evaluation of training programs, the functioning of markets for education and skills, and migration and job search. Descriptions of Phase I projects can be found on the GLM | LIC website, where Phase II projects will be added later this month.
