Activation in integrated sevices?. Bridging social and employment services in European countries
Activation policies and programs are one of the main instruments to promote the transition from welfare to work and to (re)integrate people depending on social insurance benefits or social assistance into the labor market. However, to make labor market integration sustainable, disadvantaged people need to be supported with sufficient resources, such as personalized employment, social services and other services to enhance their employability. Under the term service integration, many countries undertake efforts to combine social and employment services in more or less integrated services. In this paper I study how these new integrated services look like with respect to government structures, e.g. shifts of responsibility upwards or downwards for both groups and how encompassing these new services are both with respect to target group and involved actors.
