Chapter 9 presents the conclusions of the book in the form of policy recommendations for an enabling policy. Family policy, day care, basic, and secondary education are areas where much can be done to enhance the development of the individual capabilities that enable citizens to participate in the labour market and in the society. Tailored services produced collaboratively by different public, civic, and private agents are needed. Professional and civic associations need to be included in policy making in order to mobilize relevant expertise, to ensure the implementation of reforms and to deepen democracy. Local experimentation as well as horizontal and vertical learning in multi-organizational fields must be enhanced to develop the quality of services.

Keywords:   family policy, day care, tailored services, secondary education, individual capabilities, professional associations, civic associations, horizontal learning, vertical learning, quality of services
