No Rights Without Responsibility: Rebalancing the welfare state

May 20, 2011

By Matthew Oakley & Peter Saunders.

No Rights Without Responsibility argues that conditions on benefit claimants should be increased so that they have to spend more time each week looking for a job. With research from the DWP finding that the average jobseeker currently spends just one hour a day looking for work, the study recommends that current work search requirements should be expanded to make sure that claimants can stay in – or get into – the habits of a normal working lifestyle.
