The current globalized economy is able to produce diverse commodities and distribute these across vast distances. However, the workforce which underpins these networks experiences vast inequalities in income and working conditions. As an academic field, global labour studies seeks to understand how different forms of employment sustain uneven patterns of consumption at a global scale, and how the inequalities in working conditions are created and maintained. This lively and accessible book explores these structures and forces that shape lives across the world. Maintaining a consistent focus on questions of power, networks, space and livelihoods, this book opens up key issues and concepts such as global production networks, changing labour market dynamics, forced labour, contemporary migration trends and new labour organizations. This approach provides an integrated framework to further analyse the social contexts of work on a global scale. With suggested readings at the end of each chapter, Global Labour Studies is an essential text for undergraduate courses on global labour issues in the fields of geography, politics, sociology, labour studies and international development.
