Report on services delivered to long-term unemployed citizens under the Danish Active Employment Policy Act


Report no. 2/2022

The report concerns whether long-term unemployed citizens are offered employment services that bring them closer to the labour market. 

The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Ministry of Employment has supported a focused employment effort directed at the long-term unemployed. 

The Ministry of Employment has not sufficiently supported the municipalities’ efforts to provide long-term unemployed citizens with focused activation services. As a consequence, there is a risk that long-term unemployed citizens are not brought closer to the labour market. 

Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in September 2021.
