Abstract

This paper contains a practical step by step method for national governments and social partners to map out their own national pathway to flexicurity, based on the recently established EU policy framework on flexicurity, which includes a set of common principles and different pathways of flexicurity. The central idea is to develop positive sum games where not just one party gains and the other lose.

Keywords: flexicurity, European Employment Strategy, social partners, industrial relations, negotiation
