About the Book

In nearly all OECD countries, the labour market has been in flux in recent decades. This book examines the labour markets and the institutional frameworks that condition their functioning in four different countries: Canada, the United States, Denmark and Sweden. Through a comparative study of these cases, the book discusses the nation-specific patterns that exist in a world that seems to become increasingly subject to common social and economic development.

Table of Contents

Part I: The Institutional Framework of National Labour Markets

Part II: Labour Market Outcome and Welfare Regimes
