Overview

The implications of globalization for labor are more often asserted than analyzed. This collection, and its companion volume Globalization and Patterns of Labour Resistance edited by Jeremy Waddington, seek to remedy this deficiency by presenting contemporary research on the relationship between the globalization of production and the regulation of labor. It considers the ways in which national and supra-national regimes of labor regulation are being actively reconstructed in the context of the internationalization of production. The contributors analyze the implications of changes in different national labor regimes for relations between state, capital and labor, and for class and gender segmentation, and discuss the scope and limits of recent initiatives in the implementation of international labor standards.
