Essay aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Systeme - Allgemeines und Vergleiche, Note: A, South Bank University London (Faculty of Art and Human Sciences), Veranstaltung: European Policy - Seminar Comparative Analysis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: After investigating the active employment measures of the United Kingdom and Germany as well as their reforms of the Employment Services since the creation of the European Employment Strategy in1997, it can be said that Germany adapted huge parts of the British system. The British set the European Employment Strategys agenda and extended their policy model to the European level.

While Germany obviously respected the European Employment Strategy as a superior guidance and treated it as a self standing European Policy, the British used it to extend the reach of their national policies.

In the United Kingdom as well as in Germany, the reforms of the employment policies have not been determined and implemented in a process of broad public participation but mostly as a top-down process, with decisions made by a professional elite.

On the other hand, one must acknowledge that there are limits to extensive recalibration of national macroeconomic policies, as well as doubts about the extent to which national fiscal policies can deliver cross-border demand-pull effects.
