This article investigates the implementation of an integrated activation policy in Germany. The activation paradigm has been recently extended to target clients with multiple problems out of employment. In order to do so, an approach of activation is needed that integrates policy fields, policy actors and policy levels. We compare different forms of integration in three German cities and find that local factors really play a significant role.
