Book: Perspectives on Work

Perspectives.on.WorkLabour, work and employment
Scholars from various fields discuss ideas within the context of the discourse on labour, work, and employment. The contributions deal with the concept and ethics of work, with policy implications of solutions to labour problems in the context of the European Union, with the future of work and with alternative forms of work as a response to the challenge of unemployment.

This book is based on the contributions that have been brought to the international conference “Impulses from Salzburg” in May 2007.
