The lecture will give a comparative talk discussing what has been happening in terms of labour market reform in the GCC countries. It will also consider the interconnection between the officially desired reform of the labour market and what is currently happening in the education system. Additionally, the talk would include some consideration of measures being taken in GCC countries toward this same objective, as well as assessing the impact of some of those countries’ policies on the Kuwaiti labour market.
