abstract
"Economic pressure, as well as transnational and domestic corporate policies, has placed labor law under severe stress. National responses are so deeply embedded in institutions reflecting local traditions that meaningful comparison is daunting. This book assembles a team of experts from many countries that draws on a rich variety of comparative methods to capture changes and emerging trends across nations and regions. The chapters in this research handbook mingle subjects of long-standing comparative concern with matters that have pressed to the fore in recent years. Subjects like ‘soft law’ and emerging geographic zones are placed in a new light and their burgeoning significance explored. Thematic and regional comparisons capture the challenges of a globally comparative perspective on labor law."--Back cover.
