Preventing Unemployment in Europe
A New Framework for Labour Market Policy
Preventing Unemployment in Europe is an interdisciplinary volume offering an effective and authoritative contribution to the ongoing debate concerning the utility of preventive labour market policies. Positive labour market performance is discussed from a European perspective and analysed against the background of transferability in an era of increasing globalisation of markets. Concentrating particularly on the role of corporatist and market processes, the book focuses on the effects of preventive unemployment through the comparison of innovative and flexible policy solutions.
Some of the fundamental issues the book tackles include the extent to which the conditional framework for preventive labour market policy is undergoing change, the response mechanisms to these changes which characterise national strategies and the learning processes which can be triggered through the exchange of national experiences within the EU. The discussions within the book benefit from both an economic analysis of the subject matter complemented by a broader social science approach.
The editors, themselves distinguished scholars in this field, have produced a comprehensive resource which should prove invaluable reading for both policymakers and academics in the fields of labour market theory and policy.

What Reviewers Are Saying
`Against the background of stubbornly high levels of unemployment in a number of European countries a volume aimed at describing the way in which joblessness is addressed is an interesting and timely exercise. The editors bring together an impressive list of scholars from across Europe which results in a high quality scholarly output that should appeal to both labour market policy experts and the wider social science community.' -- Thomas Lange, The Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK
