Integration into the Labor Market

Commissioned by the State of Salzburg, we are academically supervising a Salzburg-based project that develops a model to gradually develop work skills for people who have difficulties with participating in the labor market.

This project is financed by the European Social Fund:

Bridges towards Employment

(Re-)Integration of long-term unemployed recipients of means-tested minimal income into the labor market

About the Research

Physical or psychological health often restrict people’s ability to earn a sufficient income and to participate fully in society. Different measures and means of assistance can support the (re-)integration processes of such people into the labor market.

Considering the measures that are available in the State of Salzburg, the ifz and the Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research have developed a new set of recommendations to reduce poverty and help people to be (re-)integrated into the labor market. The study points to pathways and bridges that help to overcome existing hurdles, which stand in the way of leading a self-determined life. Simultaneously, the study in and of itself forms a bridge between the theory and praxis of poverty alleviation. The project’s results are available as a comprehensive final report as well as a summary of the key findings. Both versions are available as free downloads.
