About this book

Examining recent policy responses to social exclusion in the US, France, Denmark, the UK, and at the EU level since 1997, Daguerre argues that the development of active labour market policies is not the answer and that the reforms are indicative of a shift towards conditional welfare. The book is based on in-depth interviews with key policy makers.
