This edited work attempts to ‘make sense’ of recent developments in the field of Human Resource Management in the People’s Republic of China. It attempts to see how the paradoxes and contradictions engendered by contemporary Chinese society are being resolved in the enterprises and workplaces of the Middle Kingdom. The book starts with an overview of the literature, then follows with a selection of micro-oriented, concerned with topics like recruitment and retention, then macro-oriented empirical studies, a number of the latter dealing with strategic as well as performance issues, with last, those comparing sets of societal cultural values. It attempts a synthesis of what has emerged from recent research on the ‘harmonious society’. These contributions from authors based in universities in eight countries, in Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, United Kingdom and USA, cover a wide range of research on HRM, from the micro- to the macro-. Six of them teach and/or research at campuses on the Mainland. Their empirical, field-based research covers the last half-decade and presents a robust picture of both what practitioners have adopted and how researchers have tried to ‘make sense’ of what they have investigated. This book was based on a special issue of Intl Journal of Human Resource Management.

As global power relations increasingly favour international capital, it becomes crucial for labour and employment lawyers to center their field in a supranational context. As long as wages, social security, and taxes remain national matters, states compete at this level in order to attract foreign investment. This does not bode well for employees or the self-employed. Most ameliorative measures come in the form of unenforceable and‘soft lawand’ guidelines and recommendations. The conference recorded in this vitally important book confronts this losing battle of local responses to global challenges. The book reprints the papers submitted to that conference by twenty-three outstanding scholars from fourteen countries. Among the many critical issues they expose and discuss are the following: and• the proliferation of varieties of non-standard employment; and• protection of migrant workersand’ rights by regional organizations; and• global and regional trends in the human resources function; and• work training and education policy; and• effectiveness of equality and non-discrimination standards; and• involvement of employees in workplace decisionmaking; and and• the need for an equitable social safety net. In the course of the discussion the authors examine cases from many countries, including not only EU Member States (both West and East) and the U.S., but also Japan, Chile, South Africa, and Indonesia. With a focus on the nexus of multinational enterprises and international standards, the book provides both a sharp image of where labour law stands in todayand’s worldand—revealing serious social problems in a clearer light than is usually encounteredand—and a very valuable guide to directions to pursue and potential solutions, offered by some of the most engaged and committed minds in the field. It is an indispensable resource for legal workers in this and‘eye of the stormand’ of globalization.

Sport is life, fun, passion but also business. It is not easy to draw a bright line between sport as an economic activity and sport as a crucial cultural element of society. In Europe, the stakes are prodigious from either perspective. On the one hand, sport represents 4% of the GDP of the European Union; on the other, there are in the EU more than 800,000 sport clubs with more than 70 million members. In numerous ways, the former depends on the latter, giving rise to a plethora of subtle tensions. For decades the EU institutions have struggled with the legal issues that arise from these tensions, and the debate has come to be encapsulated in the complex concepts of the 'sport exception' and the 'specificity of sport.' Now, the pending Reform Treaty, if ratified, will finally provide a legal basis for a Community action in the field of sport. This new collection of essays presents nine well-informed and insightful analyses of the 'specificity' debate from several distinct points of view. The book reprints the papers presented by outstanding academics as well as representatives of the sport world at a conference on the 'Future of Sport in the European Union' held at the Catholic University of Brussels in December 2007. The authors examine the legal and political issues related to the latest developments at the EU level, and their impact on the sport organisations, in order to better understand the future of sport and to answer the questions which will inevitably arise from the new situation. Among the topics arising in the course of the presentations are the following: pure 'sporting interest' vs. 'economic activities' within the overall meaning of Article 2 EC; whether the EU legal order in fact applies to sport activities; application of EC law to rules governing the composition of national sports teams, especially as defined in Bosman and Meca Medina cases; relation of sport to freedom of association and the principle of subsidiarity; initiatives to share use of financial gains from television rights; role of bylaws and other regulations of federations at every level; responsibility of sport organisations vis-à-vis the rules of public order; freedom of labour and free movement of workers as applied to sportsmen and sportswomen; the right to privacy, image included; the 'European sport model' protection of young sportsmen and sportswomen from commercial pressures; and economic and social role of volunteering activities in sport. As an analysis of the future directions of EU sport law, this book provides an in-depth assessment of the impact of current policy changes. At a time when a new European treaty is being drafted, and when new questions on sport are being referred to the European Court of Justice, these cogent analyses of European law applicable to professional sport will be of great value to professionals concerned with sport in any of its guises.

Offering evidence on the nature of the pressure that international economic change exerts in countries with different forms of labour law and regulation, this collection of essays explores the impact of globalization on relations between employees and employers in retail banking. It is the first comparative analysis of the current nature of these relations in the banking field at the national and local levels. The articles report preliminary findings from studies of changes in employment relations in retail banking in seven economies: Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, the United States, Australia, Germany, and China. This grouping covers both liberal market economies (in which firms rely on markets and hierarchies to resolve coordination problems) and coordinated market economies (in which firms make greater use of non-market mechanisms to resolve coordination problems internally and externally). The article on banking in China is the first English-language study of the emerging pattern of industry-level employment relations in this most important of economies. The wealth of data available here allows practitioners, researchers, academics, and policymakers to reach such valuable understandings as the following: assess whether there is evidence that the impact of globalization on employment relations varies systematically across varieties of capitalism; evaluate factors that shape the relationship between international economic change and patterns of employment relations; gain insight into the relation between foreign direct investment and the politics, economics, and social systems of particular nation states and focus on distinctive developments in the under-researched Asian region. Emphasizing five key issues work organization, skill formation, remuneration systems, staffing arrangements, and enterprise governance, the analysis is attentive to both issues of change and the role of agents in bringing about that change. The authors highlight the possibility that within any economy there may be a range of different and competing sets of institutional logics. These informative and insightful articles represent the first empirical findings from the Globalization and Employment Relations in Auto-assemblies and Banking (GERAB) project. The book demonstrates that the research design of this project is a giant step toward sophisticated theoretical models that are capable of capturing and explaining the complex, contingent, and multi-causal relationship between employers and employees in the context of a changing world economy.

As the “world’s factory” China exerts an enormous pressure on workers around the world. Many nations have had to adjust to a new global political and economic reality, and so has China. Its workers and its official trade union federation have had to contend with rapid changes in industrial relations. Anita Chan argues that Chinese labor is too often viewed from a prism of exceptionalism and too rarely examined comparatively, even though valuable insights can be derived by analyzing China’s workforce and labor relations side by side with the systems of other nations. The contributors to Chinese Workers in Comparative Perspective compare labor issues in China with those in the United States, Australia, Japan, India, Pakistan, Germany, Russia, Vietnam, and Taiwan. They also draw contrasts among different types of workplaces within China. The chapters address labor regimes and standards, describe efforts to reshape industrial relations to improve the circumstances of workers, and compare historical and structural developments in China and other industrial relations systems.

Fortune called Asea Brown Boveri, the giant multinational corporation created in 1987, "the most successful cross-border merger since Royal Dutch linked up with Britain's Shell in 1907." The coming together of two longtime national champions in the electrotechnical industry, Sweden's ASEA and Switzerland's Brown Boveri, marked the birth of a company with truly global aspirations, one whose apparent genius for combining strong central planning with local autonomy for its plants has made it a trendsetter.An international team of researchers assesses the dynamic interplay of the forces of convergence and diversity present in ABB. Together they examine the actual workings of this multinational—in order to learn to what degree the corporate strategies are achieved in its plants. Based on a multilevel organizational study, their book compares seven plants in six countries on three continents.
