Languages of publication
The paper contains characteristics of the flexicurity-based approach in the employment and labour market policy. The fields of flexibility and security, that can co-exist within it, are defined. The set of 'Modern labour market acts' (called 'Hartz's reform'), introduced in Germany since 2003 to 2005, is analyzed, regarding its convergence with the flexicurity concept. Results of changes in functioning of the public employment services in Federal Republic of Germany, as well as the consequences of modification of the active and passive labour market measures for the security and flexibility level, are pointed out.
