Conclusion: Mutualization and Demutualization in the Legal Construction of Personal Work Relations

This concluding chapter provides an overview of the main themes covered by the book and restates some of its key analytical findings. It also investigates the notion of the mutualisation of risks to workers and its antithesis, de-mutualisation. The two concepts are proposed as a new analytical construct which is susceptible to replacing other vaguer notions associated with labour law reform, such as the notions of de-regulation and re-regulation or flexibilisation and rigidification.

Keywords: personal work relation; mutualisation; de-mutualisation; flexibilisation; rigidification
