Technology is already creating new types of jobs, while at the same time making others redundant. How, therefore, can governments successfully plan for a radically different future employment environment? Skills development and migration policy are two of the most effective policy levers available to governments when addressing this question. But both bring risks: developing skills curricula is a long-term task requiring significant investment, while migration policy is often highly contested. This panel will consider the latest thinking on how governments can navigate these challenges to meet a future that is far from certain.
