    Gender Inequality and Welfare States in Europe

    Mary Daly

This wide-ranging book assembles the most pertinent literature and evidence to provide a critical understanding of how contemporary state policies engage with gender inequalities. Learn More

  11. Organizing Matters

    Organizing Matters

    Guy Mundlak
    Organizing Matters demonstrates the interplay between two distinct logics of labour’s collective action: on the one hand – workers coming together, usually at their place of work, entrusting the union to represent their interests, and on the other hand – social bargaining in which the trade union constructs labour’s interests from the top-down The book investigates the tensions and potential complementarities between the two logics through the combination of a strong theoretical framework and an extensive qualitative case study of trade union organizing and recruitment in four countries – Austria, Germany, Israel and the Netherlands. These countries still utilize social-wide bargaining, but find it necessary to draw and develop strategies transposed from Anglo-American countries in response to continuously declining membership.

  14. A Modern Guide to Citizen’s Basic Income

    A Modern Guide to Citizen’s Basic Income

    Malcolm Torry
    Debate on the desirability, feasibility and implementation of a Citizen’s Basic Income – an unconditional, nonwithdrawable and regular income for every individual – is increasingly widespread among academics, policymakers, and the general public. There are now numerous introductory books on the subject, and others on particular aspects of it. This book provides something new: It studies the Citizen’s Basic Income proposal from a variety of different disciplinary perspectives: the economics of Citizen’s Basic Income, the sociology of Citizen’s Basic Income, the politics of Citizen’s Basic Income, and so on. Each chapter discusses the academic discipline, and relevant aspects of the debate, and asks how the discipline enhances our understanding, and how the Citizen’s Basic Income debate might contribute to the academic discipline.
