Labour and the Law in Europe

A Satellite View on Labour Law and Social Security Law in Europe

By Antoine Jacobs

For centuries, Europe consisted of numerous sovereign nations, each with its own legal system. However, in recent decades, Europe has slowly emerged as a single power alongside other superpowers, such as the US, Russia, China, Japan, and India. Rather than studying the separate legal systems of the European nation states, an ever-growing number of people show an interest in studying the common features of the legal systems of the countries that make up the European Union. In the field of labor law and social security law, one purpose of this approach is to see whether there is such a thing as a distinctively European social model as opposed to the social models of other powers. This book presents a satellite view on labor law and social security law in the EU's Member States.
