Global Labour University

Book Series Labor and Globalization

Globalization is a major challenge for working people and their organizations. Globalization is intensifying competition among workers around the world, undermining working conditions in many places. Adequate responses to this challenge require rigorous scientific research.

The book series includes reports on the impact of globalization, particularly on vulnerable workers and smallholder farms, their resistance, and policy options at various levels to address decent work deficits. It is a forum for outstanding dissertations as well as other excellent monographs, research reports and edited volumes from the global multidisciplinary network of nine partner universities on four continents with trade union collaborations, the International Center for Development and Decent Work (ICDD).
