The International Social Issue

Is the globalisation of the world economy threatening employment, wages and social safety nets in the industrial countries? What is the role played by the basic labour standards of the International Labour Organisation? Is a multilateral social clause desirable? As there is far from consensus about the answers to this question, the disagreement on cures and remedies will hardly come as a surprise.

Is the globalisation of the world economy threatening employment, wages and social safety nets in the industrial countries? What is the role played by the basic labour standards of the International Labour Organisation? Is a multilateral social clause desirable? As there is far from consensus about the answers to this question, the disagreement on cures and remedies will hardly come as a surprise.

This book contains the papers of an International Conference on ‘Social Dumping and Social Competition in the Global Economy’. It brings expert opinions on the origins and consequences of this international social issue, from the academic side together with these from key-witnesses in some dominant international and European organisations such as the International Labour Organisation, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the European Commission and the European Trade Union Institute.
