Evolution of labour market and policies of activation in Europe. Models and policy implications.
Over recent decades, a wide literature has been devoted to the analysis of the evolution of labour markets and social protection systems in industrialized countries. Existing contributions are mainly based on case-studies showing the transformation of social policies in a single country, or on cross-country empirical analyses aimed at investigating the determinants of national expenditures devoted to social protection. With the purpose of filling the gap between these two branches of research, this research aims to specifically investigate the varieties of Activation policies adopted in Europe. In order to pursue this aim, this project analyses the evolution of national public expenditure for labour markets in the European countries over the last 15 years by using multidimensional and regressive statistical techniques.
