Regulating for Decent Work is an international and interdisciplinary response to the neoliberal ideologies that have shaped labor market regulation in recent decades. It draws on contributions by leading experts across a range of disciplines including economics, law, political science, and industrial relations. International in scope, it includes chapters on advanced economies (Canada, Europe, the United States) and the developing world (Brazil, China, Indonesia, Tanzania). The volume identifies central themes in the contemporary regulation of labor, including the role of empirical research in assessing and supporting labor market interventions, the regulation of precarious work, and the emergence of new types of labor markets. Chapters cover issues such as labor market uncertainty, the effectiveness of legal norms, and methodologies for evaluating the intersection of various levels of regulation. ""Regulating the labor market is a distortion for some, a panacea for others. This book provides the ingredients for those who wish to transcend simple positions...It is a significant resource for scholars and policymakers who are engaged in thinking about regulation as part of a just market regime.
