This chapter probes the points and lessons derived from the 1975 Joint Approach to Social Policy (JASP) for the joined-up government. For although JASP was effectively dead despite the high patronage and enthusiasm for it, the notion of coordination and integration was still very much alive. This chapter hence looks into the implementation of the JASP both at the central and local level in the hopes of determining factors which can inhibit or promote coordination. Presented in the chapter is a summary of the main points and conclusions derived from the careful analysis of the JASP where it has been found out that achieving joined-up government is a long overhaul if presented in a quick manner and its good points not exploited outside the boundaries of the academic community.
