Dr Oriana Bandiera has been awarded the IZA Young Labor Economist Award (2007) during an IZA reception held at the Annual Meetings of the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA) in New Orleans. The award honors Dr Bandiera along with her co-authors, Iwan Barankay (University of Warwick) and Imran Rasul (University College London), for their joint paper "Social Preferences and the Response to Incentives: Evidence from Personnel Data" (Quarterly Journal of Economics, 2005).
The IZA Young Labor Economist Award is presented to young researchers who have written and published an outstanding paper in labor economics. Nominations for the award are sent by IZA Research Fellows, these are then screened by the IZA Program Directors, who each propose three papers. On the basis of these proposals, the prize-winner(s) are selected.
