It tries to adapt the labor market to the internationalized economic relations and transformed mode of production. Initiating the policies of employability, adaptability, entrepreneurship and equal opportunities, it seeks to activate the labor market and increase employment. It Europeanizes the social policy since it handles the issue as a common object of Europe and seeks a Euro level solution. Nevertheless, workfare measures in this paradigm cause a fear of alignment in Anglo-Saxon model. Strength of settled institutions and attachment of the people to the principles of solidarity and equality are vital aspects preventing to reach that fearful end. (Less)
