Full Professor

Tilburg Law School
ReflecT, Research Institute for Flexicurity, Labour Market Dynamics and Social Cohesion


My expertise relates to labour markets, labour market and employment policy, labour relatiions, labour law and social security: national, international as well as regional. I am specifically interested in the relationship between on the one hand labour market dynamism and flexibilization and social cohesion, protection and (new) securities on the other. Is a labour market that is both dynamic and inclusive possible at all? What are sustainable labour market policies? One of the key concepts that I developed from this perspective is "flexicurity". Besides research and education I am stronly engaged in knowledge valorisation and social innovation activities.
