Activation or Workfare? Governance and the Neo-Liberal Convergence

Edited by Ivar Lodemel and Amilcar Moreira

International Policy Exchange

  • This book offers one of the most comprehensive - both in terms of coverage and the range of issues covered - and systematic reviews of the reforms in activation policy introduced during the fist decade of the XXI century, in Europe and the US. The way it systematically reviews the main developments in each of the countries covered makes it a precious resource for students of activation policies everywhere.
  • The book's most innovative contribution comes from the way it creatively brings together the traditional focus on rights and responsibilities with the insights from the literature on governance and New Public Management, to offer a new framework for the development of future research in this domain.
  • This book offers a first glimpse of the new wave of reforms that is taking shape following the onset of the sovereign debt crisis.
