This chapter looks at the relationships between labour-market building, place imaginations, citizenship, and mobility. It provides an assessment of the wider significance of these relationships for processes of sustainable community building and policy programmes that seek to enhance both the economic competitiveness and social cohesion of places. The chapter also discusses the ways in which the balance of different types of labour and citizens in defined places becomes converted into a ‘problem’ of government. This problem is revealed to be addressed through active social policies that define, identify, and mobilise different communities and groups in the wider pursuit of policy objectives.

Keywords:   labour-market building, place imaginations, citizenship, mobility, sustainable community building, policy programmes, economic competitiveness, active social policies
