Thirty-three distinguished authorities in the field of labour and industrial relations law gather here to enhance and complement the work of the late Marco Biagi, a man who, at the time of his violent and untimely death, had shown himself to be the most insightful and committed international scholar in this complex and controversial and, as it proved, even dangerous field.

The topics covered range over many of Professor Biagi's special interests, including the following:

  • the formulation of a new basis for labour law that could resolve new issues;
  • employee protection in corporate restructuring;
  • the trend toward individual 'enterprise bargaining';
  • a new European employment policy and what it might entail;
  • the growing phenomenon of 'flexibilisation';
  • the effects of an aging workforce;
  • the crucial nexus of free trade, labour, and human rights;
  • the promise of EU enlargement; and
  • protection of part-time workers.

    There is a lot of insight, innovation, and just clear thinking in this wide-ranging and far-reaching book. It will be of exceptional value to scholars, lawyers, and others concerned with the extensive and unpredictable changes under way in today's world of work.
