Labour Markets, Institutions and Inequality

Edited by Janine Berg

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: Labour market institutions, including collective bargaining, the regulation of employment contracts and social protection policies, are instrumental for improving the well-being of workers, their families and society. In many countries, these institutions have been eroded, whilst in other countries they do not exist at all.
