Economy, employment and skills: European, regional and global perspectives in an age of uncertainty

The book provides a number of different perspectives related to the demand for labour and skills resulting from rapid technological change and the capacity of the supply-side to keep pace. Over the long-run the supply side is usually able to respond, but often the policy imperative is to deal with matters over the short-to medium-term. The book here provides food for thought in this regard and illuminating insights that might yet stimulate innovative policy solutions at supra-national, national or local levels with respect to how the labour market can effectively respond to rapid technological change in way that is socially inclusive.
