Labour market policy in Germany



"The following paper originated from a contribution to an international conference. There was seen to be little literature available in English on job placement, unemployment benefits and the diverse measures of labour market policy in Germany. The IAB therefore decided to revise the original paper and publish it. It focuses to a considerable extent on the tasks of the German Federal Employment Service, in other words on job placement, the payment of wagereplacement benefits in the event of unemployment and on the measures of active labour market policy. Each chapter begins with a theoretical overview of the particular area of activity. This is then followed by the actual description of the area. The final chapter shows some new trends and refers to a number of challenges for evaluation research on labour market policy measures." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
