New Roles for the Trade Unions: Five Lines of Action for Carving Out a New Governance Regime

Peer Hull Kristensen, Robson Sø Rocha

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    This article builds on lessons from Denmark and the Nordic area to offer a novel and comprehensive logic of action within the emerging political economy that may be used to assess the possible new roles that unions can take on. The authors argue that unions are capable of “civilizing” globalization and current forms of governance by becoming responsible for pushing for a governance regime in a new and more egalitarian direction.
