About this title:

Synopsis: This book examines innovative theoretical perspectives and novel labour market policy responses to Europe's changing work demands, employment careers and life courses. It presents creative ideas and recommendations for flexicurity policies at various levels and in different social and economic contexts. The driving factors determining the performance of dissimilar pathways in Europe are identified in regard to their impact on the flexibility/security nexus. Key issues in the current European policy debate are addressed, including how innovative policies are designed in the areas of working time, education, work-life balance, employment relations, retirement and migration, how they are put into practice and what determines their level of success.

This volume is an authoritative overview of innovative labour market policies and research findings, with a strong thematic emphasis on life course, transitional labour market and flexicurity approaches. It encompasses a wide array of European countries and is written by a multidisciplinary group of established scholars. This book will be of great interest to researchers, academics and policy makers.
