Bogomtale fra forlaget.

This is a major new contribution to work on unemployment in Europe. Leading scholars come together to provide a comparative analysis of social policies for combating marginalization of the unemployed across the European Union. Drawing on the results of important research programmes funded by the European Commission, the book puts forward the case for a substantial revision of current policy priorities.
