Linking Policy Areas: IT education, training and youth unemployment in the UK and West Germany

Buy Article:

$30.18 + tax (Refund Policy)

This paper is concerned with examining the extent to which governments in West Germany and the UK have attempted to achieve linkages between these adjacent policy areas. As a result of traditional labour market and educational practices, Germany enjoys comparatively low levels of youth unemployment and of IT skill shortages, and there has been no great imperative to 'link' these policy areas at the Federal level; a mainly 'decentralised rationality' has persisted. By contrast, the UK's record on youth unemployment and skill shortages is poor, prompting attempts to achieve a 'co-ordinated rationality' by linking these areas. The paper examines reasons for these differences and discusses possible implications thereof.
