Employment effects of the experimental labour-market policies in the 1980s and 1990s. A socio-historical analysis and conclusions for today

The different approaches of the experimental labour market policies in the 1980s and 1990s had one thing in common: the linkage of employment and socio-political objectives. The aim of the current study is to reconstruct the former employment effects – and in addition the former lessons learned – and to explore the potential for an update of innovative approaches under current determining factors. The study is orientated towards a mixed method approach which includes qualitative interviews, case studies and secondary analyses of existing data and documents.
