Description - The Future of Labour Movements by Marino Regini
The contributors to this volume offer both a measured reassessment of the experience of labour movements in the 1980s and a re-interpretation of their role in the new circumstances of the 1990s. Throughout, labour movements are examined in an interdisciplinary light. Individual contributions concentrate on their various roles as actors in the economic system through collective bargaining and other mechanisms and as actors in the political arena, both in corporatist states and in other political systems. Labour movements and institutions, particularly trade unions, are also examined in the light of the broader social movements from which they originate. Transcending disciplinary boundaries and bringing together comparative research from the European Community and other OECD countries, this volume offers a source of analysis of recent future trends in labour movements.
