The new follow-up scheme for the unemployed: an evaluation

Research project AP/04 (Research action AP)


Persons :


Description :

Since 1 July 2004 a new follow-up system of unemployed benefit claimants has been in effect in Belgium.

On the one hand, the new system is designed to foster job-seeking, vocational training supply and other active policy measures.
On the other, the efforts to find work are more closely monitored and sanctions will be applied if these efforts are insufficient.

Recent micro-economic evaluations in other countries conclude that this type of policy might be very effective in stimulating the return to employment of participants. Such a conclusion is significant if account is taken of the rather weak effects of most evaluated active policy measures.
This research aims to verify whether these positive conclusions likewise apply in Belgium.
