International expert conference:

Reforming Activation: A New Turn in Policy?

March 24-25, 2011

University of Hamburg, Main building ESA West, Room 221

 

Organisers: Prof. Dr. Birgit Pfau-Effinger, Dr. Patricia Frericks, Patrizia Aurich

Since the 1990s, many European welfare states have changed their approach to labour market policies and introduced so called ‘Activation’ policies. With the introduction of activation policies the main focus of labor market policies shifted from structural solutions towards the strengthening of the ‘employability’ of the individual unemployed. Also, the social security system was in part restructured so that social security entitlements were more closely connected to labor force participation.

 

This approach to labor market policies has been hotly disputed in the academic discourse and in public. It was in part expected that it might lead to an increase in social inequality and gender inequality, so that in some countries, unions and political parties were against it.

 

Whereas there was a broad academic debate about the forms and types of activation policies, we know less about the concrete outcome of these policies with regard to social inequality and social cohesion, and about the ways in which different actors in the population reacted to these policies.
