El actual debate sobre la reforma laboral pendiente en España se centra demasiado en el abaratamiento del despido o las modalidades de contratación como únicas formas de flexibilizar el mercado de trabajo. Este tipo de propuestas, además, choca con la percepción de una fuerte pérdida de seguridad de los trabajadores. En este trabajo nos planteamos cómo conciliar una mayor flexibilidad del mercado laboral sin una pérdida de la seguridad de los trabajadores. Para hacerlo revisamos qué sugiere la teoría, con qué evidencia empírica contamos y cuáles son las experiencias internacionales de las que podemos aprender para así poder hacer planteamientos serios de reformas laborales basados en evidencias y no en ocurrencias. Finalmente proponemos una línea de trabajo de la reforma del mercado de trabajo que no renuncia ni a la mejora de la flexibilidad ni a asegurar el empleo de los trabajadores.
