Success is a matter of choice and failure is one’s own responsibility: that is the assumption underlying the increasingly meritocratic society we live in. Judith Elshout investigates how long-term unemployed people protect and build their self-respect in a society where status and appreciation are dependent on personal achievements based on ability and effort.
