- KurzbeschreibungPoverty policy and work demands have been<br>controversial questions in social policy; during the<br>workhouse era of the nineteenth century as well as in<br>current discussions. The concepts of poverty,<br>marginalisation, and social exclusion are analysed in<br>the first part of the book.<br>The later parts describe the present conditions<br>regarding poverty, social assistance and<br>welfare-to-work programs in Sweden. Social assistance<br>developed in the 1980s in the direction of an income<br>guarantee. During the 1990s, policies changed towards<br>activation and control when the Swedish welfare state<br>was burdened by a severe recession. Time-series and<br>longitudinal datasets are used for analysis of the<br>relation between unemployment and receipt of social<br>assistance.<br>Malmö, a traditionally industrial city, was severely<br>hit by the recession with increasing marginalisation<br>and long-term receipt of social assistance.<br>Activation programs are often proposed as a solution<br>and had a central role in municipal policy. <br>According to available evidence from evaluation<br>research, such programs have quite modest effects on<br>work and income and the result was similar in the<br>impact evaluation of the local program.
