More specific themes: - Reflections on the global financial crisis? Reform agendas etc. - Any research on unemployment - its dimensions, causes, cures. - The labour market and the intergenerational debate. - The policy challenge of emerging skill shortages and underutilisation - how do we design effective solutions to both? - The increasing problem of underemployment and marginal workers. - Why has work become more precarious? Is it a problem? What are the solutions? - What is full employment? How is it defined and measured? How close are we to achieving full employment? What are the challenges that remain? - Employment guarantees versus income guarantees - pros and cons. - Why do disparities in regional labour markets persist? What is the extent of the problem and its solutions? Analysing spatial patterns of work and housing. - Long-term, youth, disabled and indigenous unemployment.
