Abstract

Following the goal of providing opportunity for labor employment and receiving incomes from labor activities rather than social support, the National program "From social support to employment" aims at provision of employment and social integration of long-term unemployed receiving monthly social support through participation in some community activities implemented by municipalities, state, non-governmental organizations or business. The measures are directed to encouragement of unemployed and social inactive persons to restore labor discipline and that way raising their chances of employment, on one side, and on the other to identify persons receiving social support but at the same time working in the "grey" economy. Tracking out the essential moments in the practical realization of that program, as it is made in the current study, give answers to some of the most significant questions posed by the implementation of active social policies, and connected to their effectiveness, through the example of the National program "From social support to employment". Furthermore, it makes some important conclusions about the social system and its connection to economic development, social planning, implementation and assessment activities, and some general implications for future development.
