Arne Kalleberg was interviewed by Tatiana Karabchuk and Andrey Shevchuk,  senior fellows at the Higher School of Economics. This interview was conducted  during the international conference “Embeddedness and Beyond: Do Sociological  Theories Meet Economic Realities?” (Moscow, 25–28 October 2012), where  Prof. Kalleberg presented his new research “The Growth of Precarious Work:  A Challenge for Economic Sociology”. In the interview Arne Kalleberg clarified the difference between job security  and job stability and explained why it is better to draw a distinction between job  security and employment security instead. Additionally, Prof. Kalleberg accounted  for the growth of nonstandard employment and put this concept into historical context. Prof. Kalleberg stressed  consequences of this tendency for both individuals and organizations. As a contribution to existing theoretical  debate on this theme, Prof. Kalleberg suggested his own notion of “flexicurity”. Flexicurity is a meta-policy,  combining greater flexibility for employers and protections for workers.  Moreover, Prof. Kalleberg discussed his recent book “Good Jobs, Bad Jobs”[Kalleberg 2011], which addresses  the problem of growing inequality and polarization in both economic and non-economic job characteristics.  Prof. Kalleberg also shared with us his future research plans. His next research direction deals with the idea of  precarious work and focuses on international comparisons. Finally, Prof. Kalleberg recommended some of the  most relevant and interesting books in this research field
