Transformations of Work gives a comprehensive analysis of the development and current challenges of national systems of labour law and social security. Market volatility and uncertainty have put welfare and social security policies back on the centre stage and point to the need for closer links with employment policy. The inability of existing income support systems to respond to the increasing fragmentation of peoples working careers, the needs of people in difficulty, and the spread of various forms of poverty calls for well-coordinated and efficient responses. This volume highlights the best practices in the various regions of the world in the contexts of international and EU labour law, industrial relations, and social security. It is a source of inspiration for all those who strive to ensure that everyone benefits from the opportunities that will be created in the coming future. It also recognizes the critical role that social protection plays in achieving this and highlights the need to put people and work at the centre of national strategies for sustainable development.
