    Ziel der Analyse ist es, anhand des Ansatzes der Verwirklichungschancen, das Paradigma von Teilhabe durch Beschaeftigungsfaehigkeit, das heute als neues Fundament des Sozialstaats gilt, empirisch zu ueberpruefen. Berufliche Entwicklung wird zu einem zentralen Begriff dieses Paradigma und der Betrieb, als den Ort schlechthin fuer die Ausuebung und Entfaltung der Berufstaetigkeit, zu einem unverzichtbaren Mitspieler. Anhand einer exemplarischen Fallstudie, werden zunaechst die Formen der Partizipation, die die Selbstverwirklichungschancen im Unternehmen bedingen, untersucht. Die Spannungen zwischen diesen verschiedenen Partizipationsformen, zwischen individueller und kollektiver Teilhabe, werden in einem zweiten Schritt unter dem Gesichtspunkt der Verantwortung und Gerechtigkeitsgrundsaetze analysiert. (The article aims to assess the paradigm of social entitlements based on employability, designed to be the new pattern of European welfare states, against the capability approach as initiated by Amartya Sen. This paradigm makes out of professional development a central dimension and out of the enterprise, as the place for the exercise and development of professional skills, a core player. A first step consists to analyze, on the basis of an exemplary case study, the different forms of participation which are required for professional development based on capabilities at the workplace. A second step highlights, under the viewpoint of the issues of responsibility and principles of justice, the tensions that arise between individual and collective forms of participation, when a company seeks to foster employees’ capabilities.)
