Transitional labour markets and flexicurity from the Finnish labour market point of view
This article presents a conceptual approach related to the European flexicurity discussion, the Transitional Labour Market theory and its main assumptions. Our aim is to bring this analytic framework into the discussion and to clarify some central aspects by introducing empirical findings concerning the case of Finland. The transitional labour market theory is a useful approach to analyse the combinations of flexibility and security, as it is not only a national model concerning one country, but a comprehensive conceptual system emphasising labour market transitions during the lifecourse. The particularities of the Finnish labour market dynamics suggest that one must be aware of a 'dual transitional labour market' and, accordingly, that one should differentiate between labour market policies.
