Certification of skills as “freedom of action”
AbstractIn the current debate on European policies in the field of employment the concept of flexicurity plays a predominant role as a form of balance between the need for flexibility of employers and the need for safety of workers.
Certification of skills is part of the active policies that favour processes
of flexicurity. However, the active policies should not only be understood as a simple type of compensatory social protection for a flexible labour force, but also aimed at supporting the empowerment and capabilities of the subject.
