Abstract

Drawing in contributions from the United States, the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland and Aotearoa New Zealand, this book seeks to foreground shifting experiences of teenage pregnancy and parenting in time and space. In the process, the work cuts across enduring ‘stigma’ contests and dominant discourses which seek to capture, understand and render fixable the ‘problem’ of teenage pregnancy and parenting, whichever discourse is being privileged.

Abstract

This collection of essays provides new insight into the complex realities of labour and employment market globalisation. The pluridisciplinary and multi-faced understanding of globalisation is based upon ground research in ten countries from South to North. Its contextualisation of globalising labour and employment market, perceived as process, constitutes the originality of the book. Globalisation is understood through a single process of both standardisation and differentiation, which also underscores its political agenda. The globalising process incorporates trends of convergent and somewhat undifferentiated Southern and Northern situations in labour and employment. Strong political perspectives thereby emerge to help understand changes in current capitalism and question the longstanding North to South paradigm. As labour and employment markets standardise and differentiate, what other problematical threads can be pulled to strengthen the hypothesis that trends converge within a single globalising process? The comparative concepts and tools proposed in this volume help to answer these queries.
