The field of interest to us – the regulation of the new forms of employment in a manner which balances the interests of workers with those of firms – is a substantially new area of action, exploration of which, with few exceptions, is unprecedented and cannot rely on a reference framework apart from the way in which standard work is regulated, which is obviously unsatisfactory in that it is at once excessive and inadequate. Essentially of interest to us, therefore, is a range of social experiments and innovations based on cooperative patterns of action and which concern sociological theories on collective action or legal theories on the reflexive production of norms (Rogowski and Wilthagen 1994).

In other words, the mode of regulation best suited to the circumstances is likely to be cooperation based on community and association in local economies (Streeck and Schmitter 1985; Cooke and Morgan 1998; Le Galès and Voelzkow 2001). Consequently, the central chapters (Chapters 3–8) of this book are devoted to the identification and discussion of examples – successful to a greater or lesser extent but nevertheless already in progress – of concerted solutions for the use of flexible employment arrangements in diverse local contexts.
