Exit from, and non-take up of, public services.


A1. Proposal Abstract. One of the main characteristics of public policy, common to the different countries of the EU and its associated members is to develop priority targeted action programmes following a logic of individualised needs and differentiated of goods and services offered. At the same time, we see, especially in the social policy sphere, a powerful rise in the significant phenomena of provoked and voluntary or wilful rupture with public services exit and non-take-up. This raises questions regarding the relation between the abandonment of universalism and the adjustment of public services to the needs of citizens. This issue is central to a reflection on the models of development and social welfare in Europe, on the European policy of eradication of social exclusion The objective of this project is to accumulate knowledge produced on this issue in six European countries, so as to produce a synthesis of methods and types of analyses and compare them in an analytical fashion. It also aims at presenting tools and methods of analysis and of evaluation used at the local or national levels concerning these phenomena The information gathered will then be put on-line on a web site ad the results and analyses, published.
