This chapter examines what kind of labour-market-related values present-day young Dutch people espouse. It then interprets these data and investigates how the Dutch outcomes relate to developments in other European countries, and what they suggest for transition policies and further research. The chapter takes up a middle position in the ongoing modernization debate that oscillates between two differentiated clusters of labour-market values among Dutch young people – continuity and discontinuity. It then discusses recent developments in the Dutch and European youth-labour market in relation to changing demands for young people. The chapter continues with an assessment of available research on the subject of labour-market values, and presents a typology of young Dutch people's work values. Lastly, it reevaluates the research questions and provides some suggestions for an integration policy for young people.

Keywords:   labour-market values, young Dutch people, continuity, discontinuity, integration policy, modernization debate, European labour market, work values
