This contribution aims at presenting a critical and synthetic overview of the researches done, since 1995, under the aegis of the "Transitional Labour Markets" current. In its first part, the survey focuses on the positive theoretical bases of this current. They come from diverse theories of the labour market and of organisations, and are integrated into a systemic perspective. The second part deals with the normative consequences stemming from this approach. The third part presents and discusses recent developments, identifying unsolved problems.
