There is an increasing emphasis on activation and participation in European social welfare policy. Inclusion through participation makes an important contribution to debates in this area by:reporting on original international comparative research;reflecting on and critically assessing current activating social 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 social policies.The book will be invaluable for students, lecturers and researchers of social and labour market policies and policy makers.
