Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyse the role of active labour market policies in Spain, focusing on the public employment service (PES), training, and employment incentives. Previously, the main features of unemployment subsidies and their connection to active policies is presented. The majority of the resources is targeted to employment incentives, despite their high deadweight effect given their characteristics. Data also show the scarce role of PES as intermediary. Finally, we present a discussion on the main guidelines to reform active labour market policies in order to improve their efficiency.
