The local dimensions of the labour market have attracted increasing attention from academic analysts and public policy makers alike. There is growing realization that there is no such thing as the national labour market, but instead a mosaic of local and regional markets that differ in nature, performance and regulation. This title is concerned with these multiple geographies of employment, unemployment, work and incomes, and their implications for public policy. The introduction sets out the case for thinking about the labour market in geographical terms, and discusses some of the challenges confronting labour markets in the contemporary period.
