It is now more than thirty years since the UK was shaken by the emergence of widespread incidence of long-term unemployment (LTU). Since then, a whole raft of economic modelling and policy responses have been directed at the problem. In this
chapter we provide a brief overview of recent trends in LTU in the UK, and set them in their historical and policymaking contexts.
