Bogomtale fra forlaget.

‘In this volume, Ruud Muffels presents carefully selected articles that are at the ultimate forefront of professional studies on “transitional labour markets” and “flexicurity”. It is a must for all scholars interested in rigorous analysis of labour market dynamics and a rich source for all people interested in modern employment policy over the life course. The book concludes with a brilliant epilogue by the editor about the state and future of flexibility and employment security in Europe.’
