High levels of unemployment have been a significant feature of most European countries for some years.This book provides a unique cross-country analysis of the experience of long-term unemployment and social exclusion in the 1990s in three contrasting welfare state regimes - Germany, Sweden and Britain.Through literature reviews, interviews with the policy community of each country and interviews with long-term unemployed people themselves, this book gives an insight into the different types of policies and their perceived effectiveness.What emerges from Voices within and without therefore is a clear picture of how long-term unemployment is tackled and experienced within a comparative perspective. The authors also illustrate the impact different benefit and labour market policy regimes have on the perception of long-term unemployment.Voices within and without is essential reading for students and academics in the fields of social policy, political science, European studies and sociology. It will also be invaluable to policy makers and officials interested in the labour market and social security policies in the UK and elsewhere.
