Overview
Présentation

Far from invalidating this opinion, the pandemic and its aftermath have made it all the more relevant, given that the characteristics of long-term  unemployment in France have not been fundamentally altered. Although the large influx of new jobseekers will mathematically reduce the proportion of long-term unemployed in the short term, not only will it fail to reduce their number, it may also prolong their exclusion from the labour market, with the associated social and human damage, both to the individuals concerned and to society and the country as a whole. More than anything else, preventing and reducing long-term unemployment at the local level requires setting and sticking to a course of action.
