Danstan Mukono



International social change has generated   scholarly debates on the process and impacts of globalization on the labour arrangement with specific attention to the livelihood of workers. In this review of interdisciplinary research, we put together and review from the labour and social security research papers analysing the trend and dimensions of labour flexibility in the contemporary society and discuss them in a more reflective way to make it available with a purpose of establishing research interests in the sociology of work and social security. We also delineate various forms of social insecurities that are dominant in different organization by drawing evidence from a multiple of studies conducted both from developed and developing countries. Finally, we points out the likely policy implications and recommend that the concern is to address inequalities and determining what socio-economic security forms that are supportive.
