Synopsis

Recent studies of the economic growth and development process have emphasised the critical role of human development. For small developing countries the existence of limited natural resources means that emphasis must be placed on human resources development (HRD) in national development strategy formulation. Through education and training (and health and nutrition), HRD can overcome imbalances in the labour market. This book explores the approaches to this challenge adopted by governments of smaller states across the world and considers the effectiveness of the particular strategies adopted. It also explores the role of labour migration, particularly the emigration of skilled labour, in this process. The book will be of value to national economic planners, labour market economists, and all those who seek to ensure the successful development of the economies of the world's smaller states.
