Globalization and Labor Conditions

  • Economics


This book explains how three major mechanisms of globalization - international trade, international migration, and the activities of multinational companies - have altered working conditions and labor rights around the world during the 20th century. Drawing on analyses of a database on international labor conditions assembled for this project and a growing research literature on globalization and labor conditions, the book finds that trade, migration, and multinational companies are associated with improvements in world labor conditions.
