Active labor market policy effects for women in Europe - a survey
() and Gerard van den Berg
Abstract: We survey the recent literature on the effects of active
labor market policies on individual labor market outcomes like employment
and income, for adult female individuals without work in European
countries. We consider skill-training programs, monitoring and sanctions,
job search assistance, and employment subsidies. The results are remarkably
uniform across studies. We relate the results to the relevant level of
female labor force participation.
