Labour Law in an Era of Globalization

Hugh Collins

Oxford University Press

To what extent does globalization challenge the authority and utility of legal activism as a strategy for social transformation? What political purchase does it have if the capacity of the nation-state to bring about political and economic change is seriously eroded? This chapter charts the efforts of the New Labour government in the UK to carve out a ‘third way’ in labour law that avoids the polarized politics and sectionalism of the past. It analyses the limits of a high-profile example of labour law reform while demonstrating how the rejection of old principles can bring forth new opportunities.

Keywords:   New Labour government, UK, labour law, sectionalism, globalization, distributive justice
