Managing the Margins

Chapter 7 assesses three alternatives to the SER: the first advances a ‘tiered SER’ reflecting post‐1990 international labour regulations and convergent approaches within and among nation states examined in Chapters 4 to Chapters 6; the second involves creating what Bosch (2004) calls a new ‘flexible SER’; and the third aims to move ‘beyond employment’ as the basis for labour and social protection (Supiot 2001). The beyond employment option goes the furthest towards an integrated approach to regulation, recognizing that addressing precarious employment requires not only new employment norms but transformations in gender relations and citizenship boundaries. However, building beyond employment towards the elimination of the margins of the labour market necessitates combining its proposed mechanisms for de‐linking work and employment status and form from dimensions of labour market insecurity, especially notions of labour market membership and social drawing rights, with visions for transforming caregiving and community membership.

Keywords:   beyond employment, caregiving, community membership, flexible SER, gender relationship, labour market membership, social drawing rights, tiered SER
