This book provides an overview of the institutional arrangements affecting labour market transitions through different working-time arrangements in seven European countries. It examines the extent to which social integration through transitional labour markets is possible, assesses the effects of labour market transitions, and prescribes improvements, with the aim of preventing the development of social exclusion from paid employment.
The original essays in this book have been written by a number of leading
international experts in the field of labour market studies to honour the
intellectual contribution and lifetime achievement of Günther Schmid.
