Alternatives to punitive workfare systems: evidence from the Parisian suburbs

Marketization researchers have just blogged about some recent findings on schemes to activate the unemployed in the Parisian banlieues. We identify a promising alternative to the harshly punitive activation schemes delivered by for-profit firms that dominate in Britain and that can be found elsewhere in Europe as well.

The CERIC blog run by our friends at Leeds University now provides a summary of the recently accepted paper by Lisa Schulte (Middlesex), Ian Greer (Cornell), Charles Umney (Leeds), Katia Iankova (Greenwich) and Graham Symon (Greenwich). The blog post is here. The article can be downloaded here.
