Example text

After a divergence in ILO unemployment rates between men and women during the early 1990s’ recession, the rates have once again converged. Since May 1997, it does appear that there has been a divergence between the claimant and ILO measures of unemployment. The ILO measures of unemployment have not fallen nearly as much as claimant unemployment, which suggests that around two percentage points of the ILO unemployed are not entitled to unemployment benefit. Whether this is because of changes in the eligibility rules for benefit, a higher proportion of the unemployed claiming benefits which are not included in the count (for example, because they receive Income Support or Incapacity Benefit) or because they do not have contribution based entitlements and are living in higher income households, is not clear.

It introduced the New Deal for Young People (NDYP) in April 1998, which is by far the most structured and well funded of all the New Deal programmes and is compulsory for 18- to 24-year-olds who have been unemployed and claiming JSA for six months3. Unemployed young people entering the programme are assessed and given a tailored package of support through a Personal Adviser (PA) for the first three months (maximum of four months). This is known as the Gateway period. If, at the end of this period, they are still unemployed, they are required to take up one of four options (remaining solely on JSA is not an option).

A working definition developed by Burchardt, Le Grand and Piachaud (BLP) provides a second perspective on social exclusion (Burchardt et al, 2002). Synthesising a number of previous formulations, BLP define social exclusion in terms of non-participation in key activities. For the UK in the 1990s, they identify four dimensions: • • • • consumption (the capacity to purchase goods and services); production (participation in economically or socially valuable activities); political engagement (involvement in local or national decision-making); and social interaction (integration with family, friends and community).
