LSE Research Online Documents on Economics from London School of Economics and Political Science, LSE Library
A renewed discussion has triggered on if and how flexicurity strategies could tackle the explosion of unemployment, increasing poverty rates, and precarious employment. Do flexicurity policies withstand during crisis times and shelter labor markets from shocks? Are the ongoing reforms being characterized by the well-balanced development of both flexibility and security? The paper attempts to investigate the implementation of flexicurity policies as a labor market tool during the years of crisis in different flexicurity regimes. The study will focus its attention on employment policies adopted in Denmark which is considered as one of the two birthplaces of flexicurity concept and Greece which is one of the countries that has been hit the worst by the crisis.
