BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE
The shaping of employment models in a global economy
Work, Organisation, Labour and Globalisation
Volume 4, No. 1, 2010

When the irresistible force of globalisation meets the immovable object of specific national labour laws, industrial
relations and working practices, as the song goes, 'something's gotta give'. This special issue of Work
Organisation, Labour and Globalisation explores what 'gives' when work is reshaped in this encounter. Pummelled between the rock of global market forces on the one hand and national laws, traditions and cultures on the other, how is work being reshaped in different industries and countries and what price is being paid by workers in their daily lives? How are national policies and trade union strategies able to resist the impact of global forces? And what other factors are shaping the experience of work in the 21st century?
