Abstract

Using longitudinal information on labour market participation we analyze the dynamics of unemployment in Europe. We focus in particular on individuals with a poor attachment to the labour market. The countries under scrutiny are clustered into four ideal-typical welfare regimes. Overall, a remarkable stability with respect to permanent employment is observed. But on the other end, there also is a substantial mobility between secure en insecure jobs. Nevertheless, mobility from insecure employment to secure employment is found to be larger in liberal and social-democratic countries than in Southern Europe.
