This PhD dissertation studies how national differences in labour market regulation influences mobility patterns, as well as company level adjustments during crisis. The dissertation studies mobility patterns in the Nordic labour markets, and investigates how mobility patterns in and out of labour, in and out of temporary and permanent employment contracts are influenced by the regulation of permanent and temporary employment contracts. 
The dissertation also studies labour adjustments in the aftermath of the 2008 economic crisis, asking how the existence and form of temporary short time work arrangements, as well as the regulation of dismissals, influence how economic crisis are handled at company level. The study finally focuses on the role of unions in these labour adjustment processes, and investigates how and why their significance varies between industries and countries.
