This text, which includes contributions from international scholars in the field, discusses the role that unions are likely to play in the changed economic environment of the 21st century. Questions discussed include: What will unions look like in the years to come? Which kind of interest groups will they represent? How important will the broader political role of unions be? And to what extent do unions care about future generations?
