Labour Law in an Era of Globalization | Better Education Books

For more books and school booklists, please visit BEBooks


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.

This is an international collection of essays addressing salient philosophical and policy issues which have emerged in labour law in recent decades. In particular, the essays consider the implications of economic and cultural globalization for policy-making and for political and legal debate around work, including issues of gender, race, and broader equity concerns.
