This chapter presents a synthesis of the findings in this volume on the deregulation of labour markets in Europe. It argues that Europe is not homogeneous, that regulation affects structure and not employment, and that regulation and flexibility have complex and contradictory effects. It discusses policy implications and cites two targets of reform. These are collective bargaining practice and the interaction of formal education and work-related training.
