About this book

Büchs analyses the goals and instruments of the Open Method of Coordination, discusses approaches which theorize its functioning, examines its policy content and develops a framework for its evaluation. Through the examination of a case study the author demonstrates how policy actors apply the OMC in employment in Germany and the United Kingdom.

Reviews

'Overall, the book is very well written and the careful analysis of the UK and Germany illustrates why, when and under which circumstances the EES has been used in these two very diverse countries.' - Caroline de la Porte, Journal of European Social Policy
