Summary
Regulating for Decent Work is an international and inter-disciplinary response to the neo-liberal ideologies that have shaped labour market regulation in recent decades. It draws on contributions by leading experts across a range of disciplines, including economics, law, political science and industrial relations. International in scope, it includes chapters on both advanced economies (US, Canada, Europe) and the developing world (China, Brazil, Indonesia, Tanzania). The volume identifies central themes in the contemporary regulation of labour, including the regulation of precarious work, the emergence of new types of labour market and the role of empirical research in assessing and supporting labour market interventions. Each theme is explored through key contributions by leading experts. Chapters cover issues that include labour market uncertainty, the effectiveness of legal norms, and methodologies for evaluating the intersection of various levels of regulation. The book advances the academic and policy debates on post-crisis labour regulation by identifying new challenges, subjects and theoretical perspectives. In contrast to the dominant deregulatory approaches, it calls for labour market regulation to be reinvigorated. This book will be required reading for postgraduates and academic researchers in law, economics, industrial relations and development studies, as well as policy makers at both international and domestic levels
