This chapter shows that, in the Dutch case, protection of a new social risk – insufficient employability – is possible even without the creation of collective welfare-state protection, namely through collective bargaining. It describes four major developments in employability policy in the Netherlands. Each of these developments is looked at in turn, considering what theoretical questions are raised by these developments and how they can be explained. The concluding section relates these developments to the previous cases of disability and childcare protection.

Keywords:   social risk, insufficient employability, welfare state, collective bargaining, employability policy
