Timeframe: Feb 2000–June 2003
Scope: This project critically scrutinized the contribution of nonprofits and other welfare organizations in the newly emerging local workfare systems on the basis of comprehensive case studies on Berlin and Los Angeles. Similarities and differences central to the integration of “disadvantaged" groups into welfare and labor markets were identified and analyzed in the context of current processes of welfare states transformation in the U.S. and Germany.
