This chapter evaluates the activation strategies that are applied in the labour market of the Czech Republic. It studies the role of the individual approach within activation policies, before looking at the implementation of individualised activation strategy. This strategy is determined to be in the form of Individual Action Plans (IAPs), which were implemented by employment offices. It then analyses the extent to which the implementation of plans is influenced by the specific notion and discourses of activation strategies.
