“The world faces a massive jobs challenge…”

This week, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) said the world must create 600m new jobs over the next decade to address the global jobs crisis“. That’s an onerous task that collectively we face! This week The Guardian hosted a podcast in light of the ILO’s pronouncement, featuring a panel composed of John Vidal, The Guardian’s environment editor; Adam Hanieh, a lecturer in development at SOAS focusing on labour markets and globalisation; Heike Harmgart, a senior regional economist at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; Hania Sholkamy, an Egyptian economist at the American University of Cairo specialising in health and gender issues; young people in Tunis and Larry Elliott, The Guardian’s economics editor.

The round table debate focusses upon on Tunisia, Egypt and the Arab Spring.
