Abstract: During World War the Soviet Union had various agencies charged with mobilizing several million workers for permanent work in industry, mining, and construction. These efforts encountered two sets of difficulties. (1) Mobilization plans were consistently underfulfilled. (2) There was a very large unexplained “leakage” among those mobilized, so that in 1943 and 1944 it was necessary to round up nearly four labour conscripts for every worker who actually showed up at their designated enterprise and remained on the job. This paper explains where these missing workers went and the largely fruitless battle the authorities waged to retain them.

Abstract: This paper suggests that there has been far more change in French labour market policy since the early 1980s than is commonly acknowledged. It suggests that in a new economic and ideational environment the reproduction of the Bismarckian institutions that frame French labour market policy has itself been a vector of gradual but decisive change in the latter’s goals and logic. The policies started by compensatory measures in the interests in labour shedding. However, these ‘good old recipes’ soon provoked untenable cost pressures, eventually resulting in a recalibration of rights to benefit payments. This recalibration was made possible by the introduction of two new kinds of policy instrument in the French labour market policy context, described in section: a minimum income social assistance benefit, and special derogatory employment contracts for particular groups among the unemployed. These instruments introduced new policy logics that have subsequently come to increasingly dominate the policy sector.

Abstract: Labour mobility is not only one of the fundamental freedoms of the Single European Market but also a key precondition for the future of the Eurozone. Within the EU, circular migration is an increasingly important pattern of labour mobility. Migrant workers in the EU often move from low wage countries into highly regulated labour markets of Northern European member states which have comprehensive welfare states. Because most circular migrants move between social security systems and labour market regulations, they very often have very little social protection. The influx of cheap labour into developed welfare states poses a major challenge for the hosting countries. The paper investigates the interaction of standard employment, labour regulation and migrant labour in the process of liberalizing highly regulated labour markets in continental Europe. Cheap labour migration from Eastern Europe has added to an already substantial rise of low paid standard employment in the context of a highly regulated setting of labour law and social partnership. The assumption of the paper is that the use of cheap labour reinforces the dualization between labour market insiders and outsiders and potentially weakens the position of social partners as the cheap conditions of migrant work disseminates into the core workforce. The paper will examine evidence from the meat processing and construction industries in Germany and Denmark.

Abstract: This paper will outline the provisions of the 2008 Chinese Labour Contract Law, and will detail the ways in which it succeeds and fails to provide labor standards and protection for the labour rights of Chinese workers. The role of International Labour Organization conventions and other international labour standard-setting instruments in the development of the concepts and text of the Labour Contract Law will be discussed, as will the role of international standards in the interpretation and application of the Labour Contract Lsw. The paper will conclude with an analysis of the extent to which the Labour Contract Law effectively implements the international norms so as to make them meaningful to ordinary workers and employers, as well as the extent to which it falls short, and will suggest ways in which this gap could be narrowed.

Abstract: The International Labour Organization plays a central role in the development of labour law and labour relations systems. This paper aims to increase knowledge about the coordination dynamics between the different socio-legal spaces and levels in the production and application of labour law, specifically the result of how the ILO has contributed to the settlement of labour law and labour relations in Portugal. Besides the aim of understanding the extent to which the ILO normativity is experienced at the national level, this paper pursues the analysis of the Portuguese labour law and the Portuguese labour relations systems process of consolidation and transformation, contextualised by the international trends of human rights promotion and labour governance.
Preference is given to three structural dimensions of labour law reality: conflict resolution, working conditions and work quality. In each of these labour areas, three topics that are considered critical indicators of the specificity of labour law were respectively chosen, respectively: collective bargaining, compensation for occupational risks and contractual arrangements.
In fact, the dynamics of labour law projected on broad concepts such as social dialogue, concept of worker and employment relationship comprise the normative background of ILO conventions and recommendations as guidelines. The ILO guidelines have been increasingly challenged by labour market forces that appeal to a (re)contractualisation of the labour relations and redefinition of the labour functions and their rights. There have been internal changes occurring in the ILO with impacts on their guidance activity to Member States, constituting the concept of decent work, a normative platform gauged through the mechanisms of conventions adoption, of regular monitoring and special monitoring.
In the current context of crisis, the ILO labour paradigm provides a framework for guiding the global world of work, less studied than the European Social Model paradigm. From an analytical point of view, the capture of its influence requires a broad approach to the interaction between legal spaces locally, nationally and globally. We privilege a pluralistic conception of law which emphasizes the diversity of social actors producing and implementing the labour law. This analytical option is justified by the nature of the regulatory mechanisms of international labour standards effectiveness in Member States. This effectiveness is based on the International Labour Code monitoring and in their interactions with national actors and institutions: labour courts, administration work and social partners.
This paper seeks to overcome the lack of scientific research on this issue and includes three important contributions. Firstly, the prospect of labour law analysis is pledge of an interdisciplinary knowledge. Secondly, the process of ongoing transformations leads to a consideration of the role played by labour law in the context of tensions which oppose the economic functions to the social functions of law. Finally, the data presented in this paper will create new conditions of socio-juridical visibility on the world of work in Portugal and will allow other researchers’ access to relevant information.
