What of the labour market in the era of Brexit and in the international arena of the Trump presidency? Naturally, there are various perspectives, but forms of emotive or propagandist rhetoric threaten to hold sway here. Above all, Guidance Towards the Labour Market means recognising the complexities of geopolitical change within our information-sharing and collaborative networks, as well as the various and contrasting interpretations that arise. The current decline of the European Union - of which the UK public referendum result is symptomatic - and the “America first” slogan, now a distinguishing feature of the current US government, are only two of the multiple forces interacting and defining pervasive transformations in economic, labour and educational policy. Conflicting views abound. Take, for example, the challenge of agreeing on multilateral interventions to address the issue of immigration. Or the relationships between market, work and training in light of Europe’s infringement procedures for excessive debt, which affected Greece so drastically, and the lack of any formal rebuke by EU authorities for Germany’s excessive trade surplus.
