Abstract

The qualifications of individuals and job requirements do not match completely in regional labor markets. This paper discusses the implications of this observation for regional policy making. What kind of policy instruments affect such regional labor market discrepancies? Besides a general answer to this question, also a more specific answer is given by analyzing regional discrepancies and regional policy making in the Netherlands. It appears that several instruments are in fact in use with considerable effects on these qualitative discrepancies, but these effects are in many cases almost completely ignored in the design of a policy mix. From this observation a suggestion for a more appropriate and flexible design of regional policies can be derived.
