Welfare to Work
Welfare to Work. The overall move in Europe and the US is to a more active work-based welfare policy. This paper by Martin Evans maps out the target populations and the policy tools used by the UK, US, France, Germany, and the Netherlands in their welfare-to-work programmes. The institutions involved, the conditions imposed on benefit receipt, job search assistance, training, employer subsidies, minimum wages, in-work benefits, and publicly provided work programmes are all meticulously described and compared for all five countries.
