INTO AND OUT OF WORK

This paper investigates Australia?s 'mutual obligation' policies for the unemployed, and makes a comparison with the United States, the United Kingdom and Denmark. The focus of this investigation is whether 'work first' strategies or labour market training programs are more effective at reducing long-term unemployment. The findings of this paper suggest that policies that encourage greater social investment in the long-term unemployed, within an activity requirement framework, are the most effective at reducing persistent unemployment.
