|Description:||International Conference "Innovating Labour Market Policies Transitional Labour Markets and Flexicurity"|
|Subject:||Labour market policies are imperative to the further preservation and development of our welfare states. However it is clear that current labour market policies are not capable of dealing adequately with the challenges resulting from two major trends: the internationalisation of the economy and the diversification of society. Europe is confronted with a double bind. On the one hand there is an urgent need, for the sake of competitiveness, to enhance the adaptability and flexibility of organisations, business processes and institutions, while on the other hand social cohesion appears to be at risk as large groups are being socially and economically excluded.
