Labor Relations in New Democracies: East Asia, Latin America, and Europe
May 31, 2010
Labor Relations in New Democracies explores how democratization has changed the material and political fortunes of workers in the new democracies of Europe, Latin America, and East Asia. It also examines how workers have responded to their newly found environment. The question is explored through analyses of labor compensation and industrial relations in these countries, and two detailed case studies. The study reveals that where workers have benefited the most from democratization – in Western Europe – they have also become more militant. At the other end of the spectrum, Eastern European countries, workers have benefited the least from democratization. As a result, they have experienced declines in their ability to strike.
