The book concludes with a discussion of the implications of the reforms to welfare services that have occurred over the last decade and a half, and the effects these have had on frontline work in Australia, the Netherlands, and the UK. It provides a summary overview of the many policy changes that have occurred in the three nations in regard to employment services, and uses a comparison to draw conclusions about the degree of convergence between them. It also draws some broader conclusions about the core idea of governance change and the new administrative science, providing insights into institutional and policy design and how these play out in different national contexts.

Keywords:   Welfare-to-Work, employment services, welfare markets, activation, public policy, social policy, governance change, convergence, comparison
