This chapter examines the case studies presented in this book and begins by assessing active social policies in the EU in general, and in the six countries that were involved in the INPART research in particular. Next, it expounds the two types of activation programmes — subsidised employment programmes for unemployed people (secondary labour market), and education and training schemes. It then explains the types of work under investigation in the case studies. The results of the case studies are then presented, followed by analysing what these findings tell about the inclusionary and exclusionary potentials of various types of work.
