3. EXTRACT FROM GSP 2.1. DIGEST – Focus on Labour Issues.

In this newsletter we are sending an extract of the Digest to draw attention to the fact that GSP 2.1 is the first of our occasional focused issues. This one with an emphasise on Globalisation and Labour Issues has been put together with the help of a guest associate editor Robert O’Brien of McMaster University, Canada.

The extract below is from the Digest which is already on the web (see above) and will be published in GSP 2.1 in April. For those who have not yet subscribed to GSP we hope this will indicate a useful aspects of the journal; its scanning and archiving of recent international social policy developments which often get overlooked among the excess of web pages needing to be continually checked.



The fifth GASPP seminar will take place on September 26th to 28th 2002 in Dubrovnik in association with the ILO-SES Programme and the WHO. The theme is the Emerging Global Market in Social Protection and Health: Implications for Socio-Economic Security.
