The Idea of Labour Law

Oxford University Press

Is it possible to formulate an idea of labour law that has universal or at least a wide international reach? In this chapter it is proposed that such an idea can be drawn only in a very schematic and stylized conceptual dimension. It seems evident that parallel to what is here identified as a basic and original idea of labour law, there are many other particular ideas of labour law, resulting from each national experience or from the common experience of those groups of nations whose legal systems share some features of diverse nature (e.g. legal culture, historical trajectory, proximity, participation in processes of integration, etc). This chapter poses the hypothesis that diverse ‘particular ideas’ of labour law have shown, both in their specific juridical structures and in the constructions of their legal scholars, diverse propensities to deviate (or not) from the afore mentioned basic general idea.

Keywords:   labour law, deviation from historic idea, legal systems, tendencies
