De olika världarna av aktivering - ett komparativt perspektiv
Växjö University, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Health Sciences and Social Work. (Research Group on Activation Policies and Social Exclusion (RAPSE))
2009 (Swedish)In: Aktivering - arbetsmarknadspolitik och socialt arbete i förändring / [ed] Håkan Johansson, Iver Hornemann Møller, Malmö: Liber , 2009, 1, p. 225-249Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The book chapter compares activation policies in Sweden, Germany and the UK as three different welfare regimes. The analysis starts out from a broad perspective on activation as passive and active attempts to redesign unemployment policies with a focus on increasing the linkage between work and welfare. It is argued that activation policies differ considerably between countries, but also in regard to different groups of the unemployed according to their status within existing benefit systems. Regime differences are generally maintained, but there are signs of convergence with regard to the weakest labour market groups and welfare clients.
