During the ongoing economic crisis, flexibilization of the labour market is seen as a way to produce growth. Labour would become cheaper and economic growth will follow. The claims of neoliberal economists and policy makers are challenged by reality and by critical social scientists. Tonight we bring together researchers and activists that voice criticism to the flexibilization policies from different perspectives.
