Employment problems and active labor market policies in industrialized countries

Abstract

"The authors concentrate primarily on an analysis of the situation in selected countries in which unemployment has fallen from a relatively high level in past years to a low level in recent years and in which at the same time employment has risen. Four countries - Denmark, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States - offer the most striking examples. They shall begin with a survey of the development and structure of unemployment in Western industrialized countries. This will be followed by conclusions to be drawn from the experience of the countries with successful employment policies. In this context the role that active labour market policy measures can play in the reduction of unemployment will be discussed. Finally, there will be a concluding summary and an indication of conflicts of objectives which can arise in the formulation of labour market policies." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
