This chapter reviews the main contributions and discusses how these could be further elaborated in future and additional research. The fist section of this concluding chapter discusses the lessons for policy. Such lessons include the intensification of efforts that should be given to the promotion of the rights of individuals to personal development and the need for the improvement of the employment effectiveness of minimum income schemes. The second section reflects on recent developments in the minimum income schemes. While recent developments were tackled in the previous chapters, there are some details of such advancements that need a closer look. Among these developments are the Hartz IV legislative and the reform of RMG in Portugal to cite a few. The last section of the chapter discusses the possible implications of the results culled in this book to the debate on the reform of social and employment policies in Europe.
