Book Launch: Regulation Theory and Australian Capitalism
3 September, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Please join Brett Heino, together with Joellen Riley Munton and Eugene-Schofield Georgeson, for the launch of the paperback version of his book Regulation Theory and Australian Capitalism: Rethinking Social Justice and Labour Law.
The end of the post-World War II ‘long boom’ in the mid-1970s proved the beginning of a process of political-economic change that has fundamentally transformed labour law, both in Australia and across the developed world more generally. The dissolution of productive industry, the fragmentation of employment categories, the rise of profound employment precarity and an increasingly hostile legal environment for trade unionism have been of immense significance for key social justice issues, including income inequality, the rise of a new working-underclass, and the marginalisation of organised labour.
