Throughout the industrial world, the discipline of labour law has fallen into a deep philosophical and policy crisis, at the same time as new theoretical approaches make it a field of considerable intellectual ferment. Modern labour law evolved in a symbiotic relationship with a postwar institutional and policy agenda, the social, economic, and political underpinnings of which have gradually eroded in the context of accelerating international economic integration and wage-competition. These essays - which are the product of a transnational comparative dialogue amongst academics and practitioners in labour law and related legal fields, including social security, immigration, trade, and development - identify, analyse, and respond to some of the conceptual and policy challenges posed by globalization.Readership: Academics, researchers, and policy-makers with an interest in labour law and workers' rights issues, welfare, immigration, human rights, international trade, feminist and critical race studies, and corporate law; scholars and students of industrial relations, social policy, international studies, political science, and sociology.
