There has been a recent resurgence in interest in the theorization of labour regimes in various disciplines. This has partly taken the form of a concern to understand the role that labour regimes play in the structuring, organization and dynamics of global systems of production and reproduction. The concept has a long heritage that can be traced back to the 1970s and the contributions to this book seek to develop further this emerging field.

The book traces the intellectual development of labour regime concepts across various disciplines, notably feminist political economy, development studies, sociology and geography. It builds on these foundations to consider a range of conceptual debates around labour regimes and global production relating to issues of scale, informality, race, social reproduction, the labour process and migration. It also explores recent mobilizations of labour regime analysis in relation to methods, theory and research practice.
