Many labour and employment scholars world-wide are engaged in the project of actively seeking out new understandings of labour law and the regulation of work amidst the debris of discarded visions. This book represents the efforts of some of those scholars who, under the auspices of INTELL — the International Network on Transformative Employment and Labour Law — have come together for a number of years to engage in transnational dialogue that seeks to identify, analyse, and respond to the conceptual and policy challenges posed by globalization. This book seeks to capture both the substantive aspirations of INTELL and its commitment to dialogue and conversation as one means among many by which such aspirations may be realized. INTELL has sensitized people to the constricting force of boundaries that were taken for granted — whether legal, disciplinary, theoretical, political, or geographical.
