Abstract: There is a growing pressure on nation states to adopt more flexible regulation in labour market policy. This report maps the different national strategies for coping with this pressure for flexibility. It examines the different strategies adopted by Denmark and Germany. Using the basic understanding of different welfare models derived from the typology of Esping-Andersen, it employs concepts from segmentation theory in order to highlight the perceived asymmetrical use of forms of flexibility, using data from the European Labor Force Survey and the European Working Conditions Survey. On the one hand it concludes that the uses of flexibility is more asymmetrical in Germany than in Denmark. On the other hand it emphasizes how germany has been able to create jobs in a situation where Denmark has not.
