The phantom of precarity

Flexicurity as a labor policy

Events / Wed 19 Dec 2018 09:30

Fundació Josep Irla and Coppieters Foundation will join forces to discuss the impact of precarious work at an event at the Center for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona on the 19th of December, 2018.

The two organisations will also present the study “Flexicurity as a labour policy: A comparative analysis”, produced by Professor Montse Solé. The work reflects on the concept of flexicurity, which combines flexibility for the company and the security for the worker. By analyzing and comparing Denmark, Norway, Finland and the Netherlands as case studies, it extracts new lessons for Catalonia, taking into account the economic and social and  structures of each country.
