Dualisation of Part-Time Work

Policy Press

In the concluding chapter, we summarise the volume's main findings and discuss some of the possible, future prospects of part-time work. We return to the question of dualisation of part-time work and discuss the capability of policy and regulations to influence the divide between good and bad part-time jobs and labour market insiders and outsiders. The book makes four contributions to the literature and to public debates on part-time work. First, it offers new perspectives and analyses on the regulation of part-time work at the supranational, the national and the workplace levels. Second, it develops a typology of part-time work that goes beyond the traditional insider-outsider divide and provides a more diverse vocabulary for later descriptions and discussions of part-time work. Third, it provides an up-to-date account of part-time work and its consequences in a range of countries and regime types. Fourth, it initiates a debate on the role and implications of part-time work among men.

Keywords:   Part-time work, conceptual framework, labour market insiders and outsiders, future prospects of part-time work
