Abstract

[Extract] Reconnecting to Work: Policies to Mitigate Long Term Unemployment and Its Consequences (from here on Reconnecting to Work) is a compilation of presentations made at a conference, Reconnecting to Work, held by the Institute for Research on Labour and Employment at the University of California, Los Angeles in April 2011. The focus of the conference was on the long-term consequences of prolonged unemployment, from national and international perspectives, but particularly in the United States. The keynote speech to the conference by economist Richard B. Freeman is formalised in Reconnecting to Work as the "Forward" and "sets the stage" for and for the most part the sentiment of this volume. An inclusive overview of its themes is provided by the editor's "Introduction" (Chapter 1).
