Flexicurity and Beyond

Finding a New Agenda for the European Social Model

Edited by: Henning Jorgensen, Per Kongshoj Madsen

Flexicurity has become the focal point of the Lisbon-process and the European social model. How can synergies develop between a flexible labor market and more security for the citizens? In this context, economic dynamism and social safety are often portrayed as incompatible. The articles in this volume take the opposite position and argue that they can be each other's pre-condition. The contributors are leading European experts in the rapidly growing field of flexicurity research. Their contributions are essential reading for both practitioners and scientists engaged in shaping the economic and political future of Europe.
