This book challenges the underlying presupposition that regular employment is the royal road to inclusion. Drawing on original empirical research, it investigates the inclusionary and exclusionary potentials of different types of work, including activation programmes. Active social policies in the EU makes an important contribution to the debates in this area by: reporting on original international comparative research; reflecting on and critically assessing current activating policies; evaluating the consequences of these policies, as well as challenging the premises they are based on; including the perspectives of service users in its analyses; offering recommendations for the future design of activating policies. The book will be invaluable for students, lecturers and researchers of social and labour market policies and policy makers. It is essential reading for those interested in issues of inclusion, activation and the role of types of work in promoting inclusion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a balanced book, revealing a sensitivity to complex issues. The concluding emphasis on the need to view social policy innovations such as activation from the perspectives and experiences of clients is salutary and needs to be more widely adopted in comparative social policy research." Social Development Issues
"There is currently a lot of political rhetoric about 'active social policies' in the EU. This book provides an empirical and analytical view of the complex issues of active employment and social policies in Europe. It is a most welcome contribution to ongoing debates. I warmly recommend it to policy makers, researchers and practitioners who wish to keep abreast of developments in the field." Matti Heikkila, Deputy Director General of STAKES (National Research and Development Centre for Welfare and Health), Helsinki, Finland
