Abstract and Keywords

There is little doubt that globalization has had profound effects on the governance of employment relations with destabilization of national institutional frameworks taking place in the absence of coherent transnational systems. Nevertheless, these destabilized institutional configurations are shaping new emerging institutional arrangements. This chapter explores this phenomenon in the context of two cases: the globalization of finance and the emergence of global labour standards. It concludes by arguing that, despite globalization, actor strategies in the globalized context are shaped by pre-existing institutional experience.

Keywords: institutional adaptation, finance, labour standards, destabilization, globalization
