The Asian and Australasian Society of Labour Economics (AASLE) was incubated in 2016 with the primary aim of promoting research and cooperation in labour and applied economics across the region of Asian and Australasia. Up until today, AASLE have successfully organised three academic conferences; the inaugural conference in Australia (2017), followed by two successive conferences in South Korea (2018) and Singapore (2019). In 2020 AASLE took part in the EALE SOLE AASLE Virtual World Conference and organised an online standalone Job Market Event. The AASLE Conference series is set to be an annual gathering to discuss policies and applications in labour economics.
