With the Hartz reforms active labor market policies in Germany were overhauled considerably. The paper reviews the recent evaluation findings and draws some conclusion for the future setup of active labor market policies in Germany. It argues in favor of a streamlined repertoire of active labor market policy schemes focusing on programs with proven positive effects (wage subsidies, training, start-up grants and placement vouchers) and calls for a systematic evaluation of all schemes not scrutinized so far.
