(p.201) 6 Conclusion
Welfare to Work

Amir Paz-Fuchs

Oxford University Press

A vast terrain lies between basic, unconditional income policy and some of the conditions incorporated in modern welfare-to-work programmes. The purpose of this book is to assess the fairness of these conditions in light of background justifications, and to question whether the results of a policy that advances such conditions will be equitable. The book concludes by showing that rather than undermining social inclusion and labour market integration, strengthening welfare rights and relaxing preconditions on entitlement would serve the very objectives that welfare-to-work programmes are supposed to advance.

Keywords:   welfare-to-work programmes, social contract, welfare state, welfare rights, equality, conditionality, duty to work, inclusion and exclusion, labour markets, unemployment
