The invisible hand at the steering wheel?

The government should steer stronger on the market for reintegration services. Less “laissez faire” and a stronger commitment and organising of institutional learning potential in the implementation of reintegration measures. “We have to turn a 6 into a 9…!”

This has been the message that Arthur van de Meerendonk delivered in his contribution to the “Activating States” Seminar on June 23rd 2010 in Amsterdam. The Seminar was organised by the University of Amsterdam to celebrate the publishing of a reasearch report on the role of governance in reintegration policies and implementation in Australia, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands over the past decade.
