This paper aims to connect some of the main themes that emerged from the papers presented at the 1999 International Symposium on Career Development and Public Policy. It first addresses the need for links between policymakers and practitioners, the rationale for policy interest in career development services, and the way in which this rationale is being strengthened by the current transformations in work and career. It then explores the potential roles for public policy in relation to career development services and ways in which the career development sector can influence the policy-making process. It discusses a range of policy issues related to making career development services available to all people throughout their lives. This includes the nature of such services, where they will be located, and who should pay for them. It concludes with a review of the need for stronger structures and processes to bring together career development practitioners with policymakers and other stakeholders to address tasks of common concern, at both the national and international levels.
