This chapter examines the research literature on the inclusionary and exclusionary potentials of various forms of work. It provides a review on studies addressing the effects of active social policies in terms of inclusion and exclusion. It explores the participation in ‘standard’ work, part-time work and flexi-work, employment programmes and training, unpaid work and informal paid work. It evaluates the issues that should be the focus of research on the inclusionary and exclusionary potentials of forms of work, as well as the social policies promoting them.
