Author Info

  • Hélène Zajdela


This paper is aimed at calling into question the normative foundations of active labour market policies, especially the strategy to ?make work pay? by analysing the « revealed preferences » through public decision making process. We use J. Rawls, R. Dworkin and A. Sen?s theory of justice as well as N. Fraser?s theory of recognition to highlight the underlying assumptions of active labour market policies and to assess the nature of responsibility they define. JEL Classification ? A13, D63, J2, I38.
