ABSTRACT
More European documents as Treaty of Rome, Amsterdam Treaty and Lisbon Strategy, expres the concerns of the European Union about ensuring for its citizens jobs and a better life, which covers four major areas of reform: investing in people, more research, development and innovation, a dynamic European business environment and green economy. Thus, in this paper we propose to address the social measures at European level and in Romania, with focus on the concept of flexicurity, its acceptance in Europe and the possible causes underlying the use of flexicurity policies in the context of postmodern societies. We also try to identify the links between flexicurity policies, the Lisbon strategy and lifelong education.
