In this chapter, we review and comment on some of the common themes that have threaded their way throughout the text. We highlight similarities and differences in areas pertinent to tourism employment such as decent work, different facets of migration, youth employment and education, the precarity of tourism work and employment relations. The chapter culminates in a loose agenda for future research distinguishing between avenues in existing areas of research where further detailed work may lead to new insights, and new areas of research that present themselves given developments in the macro-environment (e.g. socio-political changes or technological developments).
