Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project investigates how the Danish flexicurity-model has developed through the years and until present and which consequences it brings to the unemployed. The Danish flexicurity-model is quite unique and it is one of the earmarks of the Danish welfare state and it is considered as one the cornerstone in the Danish labour market. In daily speech the flexicurity-model is known as “the golden triangle” because it consists of three main characteristics. The characteristics of the model are: flexibility, which guarantees a flexible labour market, security, which guarantees the workers an economic safety if they lose their job, and an active employment policy, which guarantees the unemployed help and guidance so they can come back to the labour market as soon as possible. Because of it’s success the Danish flexicurity-model has received great attention from many countries around the world who have been inspired by it. The Danish flexicurity-model has been under development, and some may argue that the model has lost some of it’s unique characteristics and that some of legs in “the golden triangle” have become longer and that one of the legs, the “security-leg”, has become shorter, so there present is an unbalance in the model. In this project we will investigate how the Danish flexicurity-model has developed during the years until present and which consequences it brings to those suffering under it; the unemployed. First we will account for how the Danish flexicurity-model was established, what it’s purposes are and how it has developed. Then we will discuss how the economic theories about Keynesianism and Monetary look at the Danish flexicurity-model and which opinions they have about it. Next we will analyze how the changes in the Danish flexicurity-model affect the unemployed. Hereunder we will investigate how the unemployeds’ search after work has changed together with the changes in the flexicurity-model and which incentives there are important in their search. Furthermore we wish to analyze which consequences the unemployeds experience as a result of they have become unemployed, for example we would like to investigate if the unemployeds are experiencing a greater deal of stigmatization by the society and how it affects their acknowledgement in the society. To analyse this thesis we will use the theories about Stigmatization and Acknowledgement.
