Contracting-out Welfare Services focuses on the design and overhaul of welfare-to-work systems around the world in the light of the radical re-design of the welfare system; internationally based authors utilise a national/program case study, considering employment services policy and activation practices.

  • International contributors bring a global comparative perspective to the subject
  • Contributors are all experts in their field, who also draw on a much longer intellectual legacy
  • Uses employment services as a case study to advance understanding in relation to a host of broader principles and concepts
  • Each paper included within the text uses a national/program case study, and each considers employment services policy in general, and activation practices in particular
