The Georgetown Public Policy Review is currently seeking submissions for the spring 2012 edition based on the following theme:
THE GLOBAL WORKFORCE:
CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES IN AMERICA AND ABROAD
As the world struggles to recover from a major recession, policymakers worldwide are forced to confront the realities of economic downturn and severe job loss, including the impacts of unemployment on individual workers and on the economy at large. A primary focus of domestic and international policy discussions is how to educate and train a strong workforce whose skills are responsive to a changing global economy. Facing a future marked by changing demographics, resource shortages, and global systems of production and consumption, governments and non-governmental institutions are responding to these challenges and preparing the next generation to compete in the global workforce.
Submissions may focus on a wide variety of national or international affairs and may expand upon the theme chosen for this year. Papers that bridge the divide between theory and practice are encouraged. Possible topics exploring this yearís theme include but are not limited to:
- Impacts of persistent, high rates of unemployment both globally and in the United States;
- Policies that may create lasting job growth, and those that may threaten the creation of jobs;
- Impacts of aging populations or, conversely, a predominantly young workforce on economies, societies, and employment; and
- Workforce development strategies that effectively address current labor needs; and
- Education programs to ensure that the next generation is competitive in the global workplace.
