Since the late 1980s the experiences of work and employment in the former communist world have been profoundly transformed. An ideological commitment to full employment and personal and societal liberation through work in the Soviet system has given way to mass unemployment, increasing labour market inequality, profoundly changing work practices and the deepening forms of work 'outside', but articulated with the formal economy. Work, Employment and Transition brings together a series of essays by leading international scholars working on these issues. The contributions both highlight the varied and complex forms which work and employment restructuring are taking in the post-soviet world, and make important theoretical contributions to our understanding of these transformations. The book focuses on four main aspects of restructuring in the post-communist world. * The influence of neo-liberal policies on the nature of employment and work * The restructuring of workplaces and trade union politics since 1989 * The role of gender in the experience of employment change * The role of new and alternative forms of work, and the role of household survival strategies in the informal economy This important new work will be essential reading for those studying transition economies, and will be of vital interest to scholars across a range of disciplines, including economics, sociology, political science and business studies.
