A presentation of the results of a research-based review of Danish and international studies from 2000-2011

Three main points:

  • The documented effects of contracting out are smaller and the results more mixed than often assumed in political debates on the issue
  • There are significant differences in the documented effects within the technical and social service areas
  • The documented effects for employees affected by contracting out are generally negative
