This book seeks to gain a better understanding of the paradoxical relationship between the alleged need of European labour markets to become more flexible and the way in which national policies pursue this aim without jeopardising existing high standards of income and employment security. Special interest is devoted to the way in which countries opt for different policy routes to cope with the aim of balancing flexibility and security goals in their respective labour market and social protection policies. The contributions in this book all try to unveil the particular changes or transitions occurring in the various labour markets, to learn about their medium and longer term effects and the role of institutions and policies to cushion the adverse consequences of these changes."Flexibility and Employment Security in Europe" is a study rich in data that will appeal to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of the labour market and labour economics, European studies and social policy. It will also prove invaluable to policymakers seeking a greater understanding of the complex issues surrounding, and the relationship between, European labour market flexibility and standards of income and employment security.
