International Workshop "Vouchers, contracting-out and performance standards: Market mechanisms in active labor market policy"
The workshop presents international current research on the use of market mechanisms in active labor market policy. The scientific committee encourages in particular contributions on vouchers for active labor market programs, on contracting-out of employment services, but also on performance standards for public bureaucracies as well as for private providers, related to active labor market policies. Theoretical contributions, empirical research using survey evidence or experiments as well as policy-orientated papers are welcome.
