Политика flexicurity в Европейском союзе и «гибкое» регулирование труда в России
Although the word “flexicurity” is not used in the Russian context, it is possible to analyze whether all or some elements of this European policy are applied in Russia. The article shows that common talks about excessive “rigidity” of Russian employment protection legislation is no more than a myth. In contrary, the “security” part of flexicurity such as active labour market policy, lifelong learning and effective social dialogue is failed to be adequately implemented.
Nevertheless, the major employers’ organization of Russia takes to public discussion only the deregulative changes of labour legislation facing a minor opposition of weak trade unions. This situation is very dangerous to Russian social development, especially in the current difficult economic situation.
