This chapter is concerned with the evaluative function of local agencies in the activation of services provision. It pays special attention to the type of information that is considered relevant and taken into account whenever decisions on the nature of activation interventions are made. This type of information is usually referred to as the so-called ‘informational basis of judgment in justice’. The chapter also compares the employability approach and the capability approach, in order to determine the implications on the selection of informational bases.

Keywords:   evaluative function, local agency, activation interventions, informational basis, judgment in justice, employability approach, capability approach
