MARKETIZATION IN PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT SERVICES: LESSONS FROM UK EXPERIENCE FOR TURKEY
MARKETIZATION IN PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT SERVICES: LESSONS FROM UK EXPERIENCE FOR TURKEY

Varol DUR [1]


With its liberal welfare regime and different understanding on social issues, United

Kingdom separates from continental European countries. These differences create

opportunities for UK’s governments to materialize “most advanced” neo-liberal

reforms in the fi eld of public employment services. Not only the current situation of

marketized employment services in UK, but also its historical developments provide

numbers of positive and negative examples for the countries planning to implement

similar reforms..

This study does not reach a conclusion indicating that UK has best or worst practices

in this fi eld. However, it suggests that the UK’s example contains very valuable

inputs about pros and cons of marketization in public employment services and how

this process should manage. In this scope, the study aims to derive lessons from UK

case for Turkish public employment services from objective point of view.
