The aim of this book is to explore labour law's conceptual and normative narrative. If labour law is informed by the wider political and economic landscape within which it operates, what shape does or should labour law assume in response to the transformation of the political economy in countries of the global North, with the declining prevalence of the postwar model of full employment within a formal welfare state regime.

Correspondingly, what is the proper role to be played by labour law and labour relations institutions in the development process within industrialising countries of the global South? Drawing on the expertise of leading labour law scholars, this collection addresses those questions by examining the growth of informalisation. It offers research that is both empirically-grounded and doctrinally astute, exploring the changing face of labour law in the global North and South.
