The ILO’s ‘Decent Work’ And Labour Law Deregulation: Can They Be Reconciled? [8 October 2010]

by Michele Faioli





In a national framework labour law constantly evolves in a system of forces and purposes, and such evolution shapes the relevant labour market. Labour law systems result from political and social contention informed by theory, legal tradition, and other variables. During this process, in fact, the labour market develops its own regulations, as it does not rely upon a theoretical scheme of vacuums and gravities. The tension between the labour law’s pressure to make labour markets conform to the law, on one hand, and the labour markets’ pressure to make labour law adapt itself to economic changes, on the other hand, generates the ‘duality’ of labour law that is the subject of this paper.
