This book brings together international experts on welfare-state research, gender equality, labor, industrial relations, migration, and integration to provide a detailed and contemporary understanding of part-time work at national, sector, industry and workplace levels. Part-time work is critically examined, serving as a prism to analyze wider trends—particularly in employment for women—including the continued increase in part-time work and processes that lead to increased labor inequality. The contributors consider part-time employment in different institutional settings across Europe, the United States, Australia, and Korea.
 
Review Quotes
Anne Lise Ellingsæter, University of Oslo
“This rich collection, with contributions from leading scholars, broadens our understanding of part-time work in contemporary labour markets. The study of the politics of part-time work - at different levels and in a wide range of countries and its consequences for the quality of work and work-life balance - offers an invaluable contribution to scholars and students in the field.”
