Wirkung arbeitsmarktpolitischer Instrumente im SGB III: Maßnahmen auf dem Prüfstand



While unemployment has been markedly reduced in Germany over the last ten years, the aims of employment policy - among them, the avoidance and shortening of periods of unemployment - continue to put high demands on the legislative and executive authorities as well as on the employment administration. Beneath placement services, active labor market policies are supposed to support the re-integration of unemployed persons into the labor market. For the entry cohorts of the years 2011 and 2012, this report analyses how effective labor market policy programs were in bringing back participating unemployed into work. The analysis focuses on the first and second year after program start.
