Previous studies show that reforms in labour market policies differ across countries. This may be partly due to the impact of European integration on these policy reforms. While most of these studies are qualitative case studies, the present study aims at explaining cross national variation in expenditures on active labour market policies (ALMPs) quantitatively. Relying on pooled time series data, the study tests whether and how Europeanisation influenced activation. The analyses lead to the conclusion that the European Employment Strategy (EES) has contributed to shifts from passive to ALMPs. Using new indicators, we trace the impact of specific mechanisms of the EES, resulting in evidence for the influence of mutual learning through the peer review programme.
