'I feel confident that this book will be judged to have made a very significant contribution to the study of European labour law. It fills a particular niche within the rich existing literature by providing a lucid, accessible, and succinct thematic overview of the subject, in much the same way as the author has so successfully done for the study of British labour law in her work on perspectives on labour law.' – Mark Freedland, Oxford University, UK 'EU law, shaped both judicially and at the legislative level, disrupts national labour law – perhaps for good reasons, perhaps for bad reasons, sometimes for reasons which are elusive. Challenges of an intellectual and practical nature confront those trying to pick a path through material accumulated over several decades – and intrigue those thinking about the future of the European Social Model. This book offers an insightful, thoughtful and inspiring account of the nature(s) and purpose(s) of EU labour law and is a hugely welcome addition to the literature.' – Stephen Weatherill, Somerville College, Oxford, UK EU Labour Law is a concise, readable and thought-provoking introduction to the labour and employment law of the European Union. The book explores the subject's major policy themes, examines the various procedures by which EU labour law is made, and analyses key topics such as worker migration, equality, working time and procedures for workers' participation in employers' decision-making. It sets the legal materials in their policy context and identifies the important issues which have shaped the development of EU labour law and are likely to determine its future, including the economic crisis and the debate about fundamental rights in the EU. This accessible yet rigorous book will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate law students, academics and practitioners working on domestic and EU labour and employment law, as well as those with an interest in this increasingly important subject from the perspective of business and management, economics, sociology or politics.

The editors’ substantive introduction and the specially commissioned chapters in the Handbook explore the emergence of transnational labour law as a field, along with its contested contours. The expansion of traditional legal methods, such as treaties, is juxtaposed with the proliferation of contemporary alternatives such as indicators, framework agreements and consumer-led initiatives. Key international and regional institutions are studied for their coverage of such classic topics as freedom of association, equality, and sectoral labour standard-setting, as well as for the space they provide for dialogue. The volume underscores transnational labour law’s capacity to build bridges, including on migration, climate change and development.
