Om bogen

During the 1990s and the early 2000s, reforms were sweeping across the OECD countries, aiming to bring about a transformation from passive to active employment and social policies. In recent years reforms much more seems to focus on the governance and implementation of labour market policies. Hence many countries have witnessed major restructuring processes of the institutional arenas for the administration of income protection schemes and the delivery of employment services.

Bringing together members from the international research network RESQ (reforming employment services quorum –, this book identifies how labour market policies are governed, and what new forms of governance have been introduced in various countries.

The book consists of four parts:

  • The first part analyses the tendency in several countries to dissolve the public employment services (PES) and replace them with new types of implementation units, paying special attention to the process of decentralisation of responsibilities to sub-national entities.
  • The second part focus on the more and more widespread tendency of marketisation of employment services.
  • The third part of the book analyses the impacts of institutional reforms on the front-line implementation of employment services.
  • The fourth part of the book looks at alternative governance mechanism and strategies, among these outplacement and new roles for the PES (public employment services) as seen in Finland.
