Additional Information Additional Information : This book is based on a 3 year EU-funded six country project co-directed by Weil and Prof Wildemeersch, University of Leuven. It presents an integrated exploration of espoused, enacted and experienced dimensions of �policies into practice' for unemployed youth. Impact was strengthened by a �whole system' analysis of the core tension in European aspirations to increase employability without increasing social exclusion. Professor Karen Evans (author of the Foreword) welcomed the �exploration of participatory public learning and improvisational policy formation' and cited the development and contrast of �restricting activation' with �reflexive activation' as the �most important, original, and central idea'. Academic reviewers have applauded the authors' �ambition' in �producing a book that offers new insights into the lives of young adults' (International Journal of Lifelong Education) and the �creative' �innovative' and �fascinating' construction of the text: �different from anything that has gone before' (Youth and Policy). Weil was responsible for 45%.
