New Book: Labor and Global Justice

WERU members Lefteris Kretsos, Charles Umney, and Wim Vandekerckhove collaborated on an edited volume of essays on the ethics of labor practices under globalisation. Philosophical discussions on global ethics and global justice centre around notions of cosmopolitanism, equity, global redistribution, and migration. Absent however is an explicit questioning of labor practices and labor market policies as these have been affected by globalisation. The book is a collection of essays from scholars in IR, anthropology, philosophy, political economy, and sociology, and provides what had gone missing in discussions of global business ethics: labor. Wim Vandekerckhove co-edited the book, Charles Umney authored the chapter on British trade unions and international solidarity, and Lefteris Kretsos contributed with a chapter on austerity politics, Troika, and neoliberal social engineering in Greece.
