Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations in Industrialized Market Economies
Roger Blanpain, Christian Engels
Kluwer Law International, Jan 1, 2001 - Law - 698 pages
Comparativism is no longer a purely academic exercise but has increasingly become an urgent necessity for industrial relations and legal practitioners due to the globalisation of the economy, the massive introduction of new information technology, the growth of multinational enterprises and the impact of international and regional organizations aspiring to harmonize rules.
The growing need for comprehensive, up-to-date and readily available information on labour law and industrial relations in different countries led to the publication of the International Encyclopaedia for Labour Law and Industrial Relations, in which almost 70 international and national monographs have been published thus far.
This book goes a step further than the Encyclopaedia inasmuch as most of the chapters provide comparative and integrated thematic treatment. Our aim is to describe the salient characteristics and trends in labour law and industrial relations in the contemporary world.
Encouraged by the warm reception of the first six editions, we hope that also the seventh edition will serve as a textbook and reference work to facilitate the task of teachers and students of comparative labour law and industrial relations. We hope, too, that the book will provide labour lawyers, HRM and industrial relations specialists with the necessary insights to cope with a world which is increasingly international.
