Description/Abstract

Explores the new interconnected landscapes of provision that are emerging in relation to training, welfare-to-work, and employment policy in the UK. Looks at the relationship this has with the state's pursuance of its goals with regard to social cohesion and economic regeneration. Provides a brief historical account of the development of publicly funded support for those disadvantaged in the UK labour market, and focuses on the emergence and growth of organisations that provide services for individuals in receipt of welfare benefits. Includes a case study of one English city council's innovative use of planning laws and regulations to bind an international retail company.
