 The Experience of Activation Policies

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the activation programmes for unemployed people in the EU. The comparison of a group of unemployed and a group of activated people showed only small differences in terms of their inclusion in, or exclusion from several domains of society. Subsidised employment programmes for long-term unemployed people provide resources to help them realize the forms of inclusion they strive for, but at the same time confront them with unwanted exclusion.
