Peer Review on Flexicurity, Copenhagen, Denmark, 20-21 November 2014

This Peer Review focused on flexicurity as a key aspect of the Employment Guidelines, and of the European Employment Strategy as a whole.

The event presented the Danish model of flexicurity and how it has been able to adjust to the economic crisis. It provided the opportunity for participating countries to discuss adjustments in their own flexicurity approaches and what might be learned from the experience of Denmark and other countries regarding the balance between active labour market policies, employment protection legislation, lifelong learning and social security policies, to allow countries to successfully and sustainably address the impact of an economic downturn on the labour market.

The Peer Review was hosted by the Danish Ministry of Employment, as part of the Mutual Learning Programme.

Background materials, as well as a summary of the Peer Review, will be made available on-line after the event.
