Labour Agency and Governance in the 21st Century?

This book offers a unique contribution that examines major recent changes in conflict, negotiation and regulation within the labour relations systems and related governance institutions of advanced societies. The broad scope of analysis includes social welfare institutions, new forms of protest including judicialisation, transnational structures and collective bargaining itself. As the distinguished group of participating authors shows, the accumulation of numerous crucial changes in the interactions of unions, employers, political parties, courts, protestors, regulators and other key actors makes it imperative to reframe the study of collective bargaining and related forms of governance. The shifting dynamics include the growing relevance of multi-level interactions involving transnational entities, states and regions; the increasing tendency of workers and unions to turn to the courts as part of their overall strategy; new forms of solidarity among workers; and the emergence of new populist and nationalist actors. At the same time, sectors of the workforce that feel under-represented by existing institutions have contributed to new types of protest and 'agency'. Building on classical debates, the book offers new theoretical and practical approaches that insert the study of collective bargaining into the analysis of governance, solidarity, conflict and regulation, as they are broadly construed.

ÔErika Szyszczak and the team have come up trumps with a modern comment on state aid and policy. Thank you!Õ Ð Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine ÔThis fine collection of essays demonstrates in a very articulate way why EU State aid law has taken the centre stage of EU law. In eighteen chapters the reader is provided with a fascinating snapshot of the main issues and developments of the law. The key elements of the EU policy are analysed in a critical way often leading to new insights. In addition the book contains a wealth of material greatly facilitating further research.Õ Ð Piet Jan Slot, University of Leiden, The Netherlands ÔEuropean state aid law needs more self-questioning and more intellectual debate. In my view, this Research Handbook is a very valuable contribution to this necessary process. It correctly identifies the most intellectually problematic issues within state aid law and asks the right questions. This may be due to the balance in the excellent selection of contributors, coming both from the academia and from practice. This guarantees, on the one hand, that the questions are relevant in practice and not purely theoretical but also provides, on the other hand, for a rigorous analytical approach when confronting the issues. The result is a fresh and interesting new look to many of the basic issues of state aid law.Õ Ð JosŽ Luis Buendia Sierra, Garrigues, Brussels, Belgium, and KingÕs College London, UK ÔThis Research Handbook provides an in-depth exploration of some of the most difficult and controversial issues in current State aid law and policy. It is unusual in providing not only a legal but also an economic and political science perspective on this rapidly developing area of EU law. The Handbook will be a welcome addition to the shelves of State aid practitioners and academics alike.Õ Ð Kelyn Bacon, Brick Court Chambers, London, UK This timely new Handbook reflects on current issues that confront State aid law and policy in the EU. State aid was a neglected area of competition law until attempts to modernise it became central to the Lisbon process 2000 where the aim was to encourage ÔintelligentÕ State aid by reducing aid to specific sectors and by making better use of aid for horizontal projects central to EU integration concerns. This policy framework has underpinned the new approach to State aid policy in the EU in recent years and informs many of the chapters in this book. Contributions from leading academics, regulators and practising lawyers, discuss topics devoted to modernisation, problems faced by recent enlargements of the EU, the role of State aid in the fiscal crisis and recession, the role of the private market investor test, regional aid, environmental aid and the review of the Altmark ruling. Perspectives on State aid law and policy from the disciplines of economics and political science are also explored in detail. Research Handbook on European State Aid Law will appeal to academics, regulators, national and EU government officials, practitioners and postgraduate students who are involved in State aid law.

For over a decade now the legal nature of the employer-employee relationship has been subject to the intense scrutiny of EU social policy. Following Community directives, Member States have established social programmes mandating some degree of employee involvement in management decision making. Other European legislatures have been quick to follow suit, introducing at least minimal levels of information and consultation rights for employees. to some extent as a result of these developments, the principles and provisions of major sources of international law and social policyILO conventions, OECD pronouncements, and the Social Charter of the Council of Europehave taken on an increasingly significant role in European labour and employment law as we enter what seems to be a major new phase of European social history. Edited in co-operation with Dr. William Browich and Dr. Olga Rymkevitch from the Centre for International and Comparative Studies Marco Biagi, this immensely useful new publication not only assembles all the relevant legal texts with country-by-country commentary; its looseleaf format guarantees that its detailed and comprehensive coverage will remain current. In this first subscription twelve reports, with all corresponding documentation, are already in place, and sixteen more are in preparation. Each report is written by an authority in the labour law and industrial relations law of the country or organization being covered, and follows a common basic outline for easy comparison across issues or subject areas. European practitioners of labour law and industrial relations law could not ask for a more useful reference work. with the primary source material and expert commentary and analysis provided by the Handbook on Employee Involvement in Europe, it is easy to research applicable law at every level in any legal issue likely to arise. It is worth mentioning that this publication brings to fruition yet another of the many brainchildren of the late Marco Biagi, whose team at the University of Modena will continue to play a major role in its ongoing development.

Since its formation the European Union has expanded beyond all expectations, and this expansion seems set to continue as more countries seek accession and the scope of EU law expands, touching more and more aspects of its citizens' lives. The EU has never been stronger and yet it now appearsto be reaching a crisis point, beset on all sides by conflict and challenges to its legitimacy. Nationalist sentiment is on the rise and the Eurozone crisis has had a deep and lasting impact. EU law, always controversial, continues to perplex, not least because it remains difficult to analyse. Whatis the EU? An international organization, or a federation? Should its legal concepts be measured against national standards, or another norm?The Oxford Handbook of EU Law illuminates the richness and complexity of the debates surrounding the law and policies of the EU. Comprising eight sections, it examines how we are to conceptualize EU law; the architecture of EU law; making and administering EU law; the economic constitution and thecitizen; regulation of the market place; economic, monetary, and fiscal union; the Area of Freedom, Security, and Justice; and what lies beyond the regulatory state. Each chapter summarizes, analyses, and reflects on the state of play in a given area, and suggests how it is likely to develop in theforeseeable future. Written by an international team of leading commentators, this Oxford Handbook creates a vivid and provocative tapestry of the key issues shaping the laws of the European Union.

Migrants at Work

Immigration and Vulnerability in Labour Law

There is a highly significant and under-considered intersection and interaction between migration law and labour law. Labour lawyers have tended to regard migration law as generally speaking outside their purview, and migration lawyers have somewhat similarly tended to neglect labour law. The culmination of a collaborative project on 'Migrants at Work' funded by the John Fell Fund, the Society of Legal Scholars, and the Research Centre at St John's College, Oxford, this volume brings together distinguished legal and migration scholars to examine the impact of migration law on labour rights and how the regulation of migration increasingly impacts upon employment and labour relations. Examining and clarifying the interactions between migration, migration law, and labour law, contributors to the volume identify the many ways that migration law, as currently designed, divides the objectives of labour law, privileging concerns about the labour supply and demand over worker-protective concerns. In addition, migration law creates particular forms of status, which affect employment relations, thereby dividing the subjects of labour law. Chapters cover the labour laws of the UK, Australia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Germany, Sweden, and the US. References are also made to discrete practices in Brazil, France, Greece, New Zealand, Mexico, Poland, and South Africa. These countries all host migrants and have developed systems of migration law reflecting very different trajectories. Some are traditional countries of immigration and settlement migration, while others have traditionally been countries of emigration but now import many workers. There are, nonetheless, common features in their immigration law which have a profound impact on labour law, for instance in their shared contemporary shift to using temporary labour migration programmes. Further chapters examine EU and international law on migration, labour rights, human rights, and human trafficking and smuggling, developing cross-jurisdictional and multi-level perspectives. Written by leading scholars of labour law, migration law, and migration studies, this book provides a diverse and multidisciplinary approach to this field of legal interaction, of interest to academics, policymakers, legal practitioners, trade unions, and migrants' groups alike.

Bei der Erwerbsbeteiligung von Frauen liegt Deutschland im internationalen Vergleich weit zurück - aber nicht, weil Frauen hierzulande nicht arbeiten gehen wollen. Im Gegenteil: Gerade junge Eltern wünschen sich eine Berufstätigkeit für die Mutter, vom Teilzeitjob bis zur vollen Stelle. Doch die gesellschaftspolitischen Rahmenbedingungen sind dafür bislang wenig günstig. Was muss sich ändern, damit Frauen berufliche Entwicklung und Kindererziehung miteinander in Einklang bringen können? Die Autorinnen und Autoren dieses Buches beleuchten familienpolitische Instrumente, sozial- und arbeitsmarktpolitische Regelungen sowie die Möglichkeiten, die Krippen, Kindergärten und Schulen für die Kinderbetreuung bieten. Einbezogen werden Beispiele aus dem Ausland, die wichtige Denkanstöße für die deutsche Debatte geben können. Hier geht es nicht nur um Chancengleichheit für Frauen. Erst wenn ihr Arbeitskräftepotenzial mobilisiert wird, kann es gelingen, die Engpässe auf dem Arbeitsmarkt, die der demographische Wandel mit sich bringt, zu begrenzen. Die Vereinbarkeit von Familie und Beruf wird so zu einer zentralen Aufgabe der Beschäftigungspolitik.
