This Handbook provides an insightful analysis of how long-term transformations are impacting labour markets globally. It argues for a proactive approach to market regulation that promotes mobility by anticipating labour market needs and disruptions before they become crises.

Esteemed contributing authors examine the profound impacts of digital, demographic and green transitions within global markets, emphasising the need to address structural inequalities caused by phenomena such as the gender pay gap and the falling labour supply. The Handbook comprises both original empirical analysis and a systematic review of literature, painting a well-rounded picture of historical, current and future labour landscapes. Ultimately, this timely Handbook stresses how crucial it is for educational systems and labour market policies to adapt more dynamically to the rapid pace of change.

Scholars of economics, specifically labour and international economics, will find the insights within this Handbook to be vital for the future of the field. It will also prove valuable for policy makers and administrators responsible for designing and implementing labour and education policies.
Critical Acclaim
‘In a world of accelerating labor market transitions, fixing what gets broken after it has happened is no basis for policy. We must anticipate change, support adaptation, and build resilience. Staggering in its scope and ambition, this Handbook offers evidence and tools to policymakers striving to envision and shape the future of work.’
– David Autor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US

‘This is a wide-ranging Handbook addressing an impressive array of topics on the transitions modern economies are undergoing. A partial list of topics includes automation, slowing productivity growth, new forms of work, the green economy, spatial polarization, aging, telework, and the growth of temporary jobs. Leading scholars present new findings as well as synthesis of existing research, along with recommendations for policymakers. Integrating this work into one volume provides a valuable resource for researchers looking to study these transitions, and policymakers thinking about how to adapt our policies and institutions to these transitions.’
– David Neumark, University of California, Irvine, US
