The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) was contracted to conduct three evidence reviews on behalf of the DG for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of
the European Commission (EC). The aim of these reviews is to provide the EC with high quality evidence on the effectiveness of interventions in three policy areas – 1) The Link
between Income Support and Activation, 2) Preventative Measures and Preventative Approaches to Low Pay and In-Work Poverty, and 3) Economic Inequality. These reviews
are intended to help promote the development of comprehensive policy strategies, are designed to help inform the EC’s future impact assessments and hopefully inspire future
reforms across the EU.
The scope of the reviews is defined by:
- Identifying evidence that closely matches the European Commission’s interest (in
terms of intervention, target group and outcome);
- The type of evidence: net impact studies are not always available and therefore the
reviews will consider a broad range of evaluation evidence;
- The geographical area: maximising the evidence available from within the European
Union, conditional on language constraints.
