Changing labour markets, welfare policies and citizenship readdresses the question of how full citizenship may be preserved and developed in the face of enduring labour market pressures. It:clarifies the relationship between changing labour markets, welfare policies and citizenship;discusses possible ways in which the spill-over effect from labour market marginality to loss of citizenship can be prevented;specifies this problem in relation to the young, older people, men and women and immigrants;offers theoretical and conceptual definitions of citizenship as a new, alternative approach to empirical analyses of labour market marginalisation and its consequences;highlights the lessons to be learned from differing approaches in European countries.
