Conclusions: The relationship between job insecurity and psychological wellbeing seems to be remarkably unpredictable between countries, independent from their level of claimed or actual flexicurity policies. This calls into doubt one of the important claimed benefits of flexicurity – ameliorating the threat associated with job loss. Why? – Lack of knowledge about active labour market policies, etc? – Psychological attachment is with current job, not "employability"?
