Report by the European Expert Group
The present expert report discusses typical situations within EU labour markets with respect to flexicurity and describes pathways responding to the specific conditions, opportunities and constraints of these situations.
Such pathways cover both content and procedure. They relate to packages of policies in four components of flexicurity: flexible and secure contractual arrangements, active labour market policies (ALMPs) to strengthen transition security, systematic lifelong learning systems, and modern social security systems. Moreover, as a basis for making flexicurity work, the report points to the paramount importance of a supportive and productive social dialogue as the way to build partnerships with social partners and other stakeholders.
