In the Shadow of Crisis: Economic Orthodoxy and the Response of Global Labour
This article examines the role played by global labour organizations in formulating a policy response to the global economic crisis. The global crisis that grew out of the contradictions and failure of existing hegemonic ideas meant that for the first time in several decades a possibility existed of rethinking the neoliberal economic strategy that has guided policy-making in most of the world. The on-going crisis and the responses to it provide an occasion to revisit accounts of policy change and to reflect on the social forces stimulating change and those representing consolidation.
