This article aims at presenting flexicurity as an approach to regulating social and employment policies. A brief introduction of flexicurity principles is followed by a presentation of the three main definitions of the concept: flexicurity as a strategy, a state of the labour market and an analytical tool. Then, the Danish and the Dutch models are analysed as important examples of application of flexicurity policy in practice. Finally, an integrated flexicurity approach at the EU level is described.
