The title of her lecture is Infant health, cognitive performance and earnings: Evidence from inception of the welfare state in Sweden.

Rolf van der Velden is Professor at Maastricht University and director of the Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA). He is a sociologist by training.
