This report sets out to describe what labour market segmentation is and why it is problematic for the labour market and society, as well as disadvantaged groups. It takes a broad view of the term to examine the situation that arises when the divergence in working conditions between different groups of workers is attributable to factors other than differentials in human capital levels. The report explores which policies or instruments are most effective in combating labour market segmentation, taking into account specific situational characteristics. The report offers a novel approach to the study of labour market segmentation that combines a quantitative empirical analysis with a policy analysis.

    Arbejdsmarkedssegmentering: Test af nye empiriske analyser og politikanalyser

    Forfatter(e): 
    Eurofound

    Rapporten har til formål at beskrive, hvad arbejdsmarkedssegmentering er, og hvorfor arbejdsmarkedssegmentering er problematisk for arbejdsmarkedet og samfundet samt for dårligt stillede grupper. Der anlægges en bred tilgang til begrebet for at undersøge den situation, som opstår, når forskellige arbejdsvilkår mellem forskellige grupper af arbejdstagere skyldes andre faktorer end forskelle i menneskelig kapital. I rapporten undersøges det, hvilke politikker eller instrumenter der er de mest effektive med hensyn til at bekæmpe arbejdsmarkedssegmentering under hensyntagen til specifikke situationsbetingede karakteristika. I rapporten anlægges en ny vinkel på undersøgelse af arbejdsmarkedssegmentering, som kombinerer en kvantitativ empirisk analyse med en politikanalyse.
