Through this survey, we wanted to collect citizens’ opinions on long-term unemployment and the potential for an EU-wide permanent programme for direct, guaranteed public service employment. What’s the best way to fight unemployment? How to get decent work and transform our economy into a more sustainable society?
FEPS launched this survey on the perception of unemployment and publicly funded jobs in collaboration with Our Global Moment, Pietro Nenni Foundation and other grassroots and progressive organisations across Europe.
The survey was accessible in 9 languages: German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, English, French, Dutch, Greek and Portuguese.

We did this survey because we were exploring ways to bring innovation in public sector-led job creation, particularly in those cases in which there is a clear marker failure: green jobs, care services, youth, rural or transition regions.
Initiatives such as the “Territoires Zéro Chomeurs de Longue Durée” in France and the Marienthal job guarantee pilot in Austria can maybe serve as a basis to inspire similar European initiatives and design job guarantee-like programmes that create quality jobs for unemployed persons in those sectors where it matters the most.
Bottom line, we were looking for policy innovation that tackles the economic insecurity and instability emerging from EU labour markets while helping address the global climate crisis and delivering on the just transition.
