This dissertation studies active labour market policies from an institutional perspective to add to the current theoretical insights that stem primarily from rational choice theories. The first section of the dissertation focuses on how employment protection and unemployment benefits might be complementary with active labour market policies and how these complementarities might vary based on the economic growth level. The second part of the dissertation studies how active labour market policies are related to the unemployment risk and active learning attitude of people with various educational backgrounds.
