To ensure that people's needs are met, governments decentralise the way policies are designed and implemented. In the field of labour market policy, decentralisation is welcomed by a whole range of stakeholders, from business and local governments to community groups and NGOs. While each have their own ideas on how to make policy more effective, all agree that labour market policy has a crucial role to play in economic development and social inclusion.

Decentralising labour market policy is a delicate and challenging subject of political debate. How can greater flexibility be provided in managing policies while still guaranteeing efficiency and accountability? Does decentralisation really enable the co-ordination of policies? At the local level, how do we make the best use of decentralised powers? The OECD requested leading experts and experienced policy makers and practitioners to address these questions. This book summarises the lessons learnt from their experiences.
