This book, which includes contributions from first-rate international scholars in the field, discusses the role that unions are likely to play in the changed economic environment of the new century. Questions discussed include: What will unions look like in the years to come? Which kind of interest groups will they represent? How important will be the broader political role of unions? To what extent do unions care about future generations?

... a scholarly volume of interest to anyone concerned with the future of European unions, and whose discussion of organized labour's approach to the welfare question should become a central reference point. * Work, employment and society *
