The Criminal Behaviour of Young Fathers

CReAM Research by Christian Dustmann and  Rasmus Landersø, finds that  very young fathers who have their first child while they are still teenagers subsequently commit less crime if the child is a boy than if it is a girl. This  then has a spill over effect on other young men of a similar age living in the same neighbourhoods as the young father. The research was covered on the British press.

Eran Yashiv

Professor Eran Yashiv is a macroeconomist, mostly interested in issues regarding the labor market. His research spans a number of themes including search and matching in the labor market (which was the major topic of my work in recent years), the labor market and financial markets, immigration issues, and exchange rate economics. He is a research fellow at the Center for Economic Policy Research (based in London), at the Centre for Economic Performance of the London School of Economics (London) and at IZA (based in Bonn). Over the past two years he has been a consultant to the Bank of Israel on issues regarding Israeli Arabs in the labor market. This is an ongoing project involving both academic, empirical work and policy prescriptions.

He is the Chair of the steering committee of the Vacancies Survey of the Central Bureau of Statistics. Additionally, he has published numerous OpEd pieces in Haaretz and The Marker.
