New Research on 'Flexicurity', Unemployement and Youths' Well-being in Europe
Janine Leschke, along with co authors Helen Russell and Mark Smith, has just published an article on the impact of unemployment on young Peoples’ subjective well-being in the European Journal of Industrial Relations.They examine the relationship between ‘flexicurity’ systems, unemployment and well-being outcomes for young people in Europe. Their research suggests that greater flexibility of labour supply supports transitions into employment, trading longer-term employment stability for short-term job instability. However, there is a risk that young people experience greater job insecurity, both objective and subjective, with less stable contracts and more frequent unemployment spells.
