Overview

Active Labor Market Policies in Europe: Performance and Perspectives by Jochen Kluve, David Card, Michael Fertig, Marek Góra

Measures of Active Labor Market Policy - such as training, wage subsidies, public employment measures, and job search assistance - are widely used in European countries to combat unemployment. This study provides novel insight on this important policy issue by discussing the role of the European Commission's Employment Strategy, reviewing the experiences made in European states, and giving the first ever quantitative assessment of the existing cross-country evidence.
