Abstract

This extended introductory essay examines the work of Harry Arthurs in historical and comparative context, ranging from early and lasting engagement with labour relations and industrial citizenship through the tension between administrative and court adjudication, the development of legal pluralist approaches to labour law, the emergence of globalization and its discourses, the long-term decline in labour's power and presence in labour markets, and the re-conceptualization of labour law as law of economic subordination and resistance. The essay places Arthurs work in the context of Canadian and international developments in law and political economy, as well as intellectual traditions of which Arthurs was a significant contributor.

Keywords: labour law, globalization, legal theory, Harry Arthurs, adminstrative law, legal pluralism
