Clarification of outcomes in terms of impacting resilience and labour market inclusion
This policy, as the previous unemployment protection and insertion temporary programme, is a support for unemployed people that have exhausted their unemployment benefits to prevent the social exclusion and to improve their opportunities of finding a job but it has low long-term results because of its temporary nature (it only covers the benefit for a period of 180 days) and the labour inclusion consequences are not clear.
