High-Level Roundtable on Sustainable Employment


The Government of the Future Centre convened a High-Level Roundtable on Sustainable Employment under the theme Towards Inclusive Labour Markets and Lasting Job Opportunities. Xavier Prats Monné, deputy director-general of DG education and culture at the European Commission, gave a fascinating keynote. In participatory working sessions, top civil servants compared and shared best practices in employment and skills policies in, inter alia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Spain and the United Kingdom. Michael van der Cammen, head of international relations at the Bundesagentur für Arbeit in Germany; Christian Charpy, chairman of the World Association of Public Employment Services (WAPES); Adriana Cicero, director for unemployment benefits at the National Social Security Institute (INPS) in Italy; Mark Keese, head of the employment analysis and policies division at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD); Harriet Wallace, head of labour markets and distributional analysis team at HM Treasury in the United Kingdom and Dominik Ziller, director-general for migration at the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), gave presentations on the challenges their agencies face – and the innovative solutions they are implementing.
