The concept of transitional labour markets (TLMs) has been developed in the framework of another European research project. It conceives analytically of labour markets as not only constituting structures of supply and demand of labour but, by applying a life-course perspective, as also an arena for different kinds of transitions. This chapter presents the TLM concept and applies it to the situation in the Netherlands by discussing three case studies of transition policies in action: temporary-work agencies, apprenticeship training, and the need to meet changing skill demands. It argues that only through a creative combination of flexibilisation and security can policies succeed in regulating transitions to the labour market.

Keywords:   transition policies, TLM, Netherlands, temporary-work agencies, apprenticeship training
