The Dutch have their own way of working, organising and managing. This book covers recent developments in labour markets, labour relations, quality of work, human resources management, work organisation and gender/diversity, as they reflect in social science research. It gives an overview of major subjects and themes in social and management sciences and it points to shifts in debates and arguments. The book covers a number of disciplines, such as economics, management and business science, and sociology, and thematic fields such as gender studies and human resources management. This state-of-the-art review of work, organisation and labour research fields in The Netherlands focuses on change in theories and paradigms, on shifting governance networks (the consultation economy), on changing policy-agendas and on new issues like subjectivity, identity and diversity. It contributes to understanding the Dutch model in various respects, and will be of use to scientists, students, policy-makers, media, management, consultants. The book has been commissioned by The Netherlands Universities Institute for Coordination of Research in Social Sciences (SIS-WO).
