This roundtable is based on a special issue forthcoming in the International Labour Review. Applying a global perspective, the special issue focuses on law-induced inequalities in labour markets. It asks: Which forms of legal segmentation can be found? And how do they infuence labour market segmentation and informal work in different regions of the world? How can they be remedied?

Description
This panel asks to what extent labour market segmentation, i.e., the divide between standard employment and atypical forms of employment, self-employment, and informal work, is influenced by employment regulation. In this regard, the balance between particularistic status protection – often associated with the standard employment relationship - and universal labour standards seems to be crucial. High regulatory standards may go along with strong labour market segmentation and provoke exclusion, while universal standards may lead more integrated labour markets, but may be limited to minimum protection levels.

Furthermore, the panel is interested in how the compliance with labour regulation shapes labour market structures. This touches on possible discrepancies between de-jure regulation and the de-facto implementation and enforcement of labour standards. These discrepancies might explain why countries with similar de-jure protection levels vary in their degree of labour market segmentation. The main goal is the identification and explanation of different “Worlds of Labour”, i.e., groups of countries that resemble each other regarding their de-jure/de-facto employment regulation and/or labour market structures.

We encourage researchers and research groups from all around the world to share their findings on the relation between particularistic and universal labour standards, on “good governance” and the discrepancy between de-jure and de-facto labour regulation, and on the impact of “legal” (de-jure) segmentation on (de-facto) labour market segmentation and informal work. We also welcome studies that deal with specific outcomes of labour regulation such as gendered employment patterns or inequal treatment of particular groups of (atypical) workers. While focusing explicitly on comparative research, we encourage both quantitative analysis and case studies.

A second discussant and chair will be selected from a different region when applications are available.
