Trade Union Strategies towards Global Production Systems

International Journal of Labour Research Issue 1

By International Labor Office

The International Journal of Labour Research is a new journal launched in the fall of 2009 by the Bureau of Workers’ Activities of the ILO. Its aim is to provide an overview of recent research on labor and social policies from trade union researchers and academics around the world. The journal is multidisciplinary and of interest to trade union researchers, labor ministries, and academics of all relevant disciplines—industrial relations, sociology, law, economics, and political science. Published twice a year in English, French, and Spanish, each issue focuses on a specific theme.
