In the European Union, the most important labour market models that have been proposed for labour market reform are flexicurity and the transitional labour market. In this position paper, we conceptualise the models of flexicurity and the transitional labour market, and we outline potentially relevant research questions. These research questions focus on explaining the variations in labour market policies across EU countries and the impact of labour market institutions on labour market outcomes as well as innovation and the adoption of new technologies.
Keywords: employment relations, flexicurity, transitional labour market models, active labour market policy, employment protection legislation, innovation, new technologies
