New comment on #dualization and stratification in labour markets out

Marius Busemeyer and I wrote a comment published in Political Science Research Methods (link) on the scholarly debates about dualization and insider-outsider problems in labour markets. We make the point that the discussion sometimes conflates the microlevel (How has labour market stratification changed in recent years and to what effect?) and the macrolevel (How do changes in regulation, social benefits and taxation benefit or hurt different segments in the labour market differently?). We argue that it is still to be seen whether contemporary process are best characterised by dualization or (partial) liberalization. This difference is crucial for the future evolution of welfare states.

It’s part of a symposium on the politics of new labour divides coming out soon…
