This article reviews a wide range of micro and macro level evaluations of the New Deal for Young People (NDYP), the British Government's flagship Welfare-to-Work programme. On one hand the NDYP has contributed to a sharp reduction in long-term unemployment, however a longitudinal perspective shows a revolving door effect : clients end up in unemployment again. Moreover, the NDYP reinforces mechanisms of selection in the labour market : the most disadvantaged beneficiaries join more frequently options in the non-profit sector, which are unpopular and less effective. But they are sanctioned if they do not want to participate in this unfair programme. Eventually, the success of the NDYP may be jeopardised by the segmentation of the labour market and the geography of unemployment. Increasing employability may be useless in regions where employment is lacking.
