Abstract

This paper reviews the alternative labour market scenarios open to European policymakers in the current movement towards enhanced economic and political integration. To clarify the various issues, the paper dichotomises the policy alternatives into two camps: “euro‐liberalists” and “euro‐regulators.” The paper concludes that the latter offers the best path towards convergence, with the proviso that the subject of regulation is a Pan‐European system of labour market objectives rather than institutions.
