The objective of the RESQ research network is to develop and refine the comparative and theoretical study of employment service reforms in selected OECD countries. The main research interest is to identify the type of relationship between the steering and implementation structure of employment services on the one hand and the design and content of employment policies on the other hand. So far empirical and theoretical research has tended to take a one-sided view on either policy structure (governance, management, and organisation) or on policy content (policy, programs, and service delivery). The increasing interdependence between ways of "doing policy" and "policy delivery" makes this academic division of responsibilities and research interests increasingly problematic. We, therefore, apply an integrated and cross-disciplinary approach to explore the causal and empirical interfaces and linkages between the two domains, and to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries.
