Chapter 2: Reflexive labour law: a general introduction
This chapter introduces general features of the concept of reflexive labour law. It starts with information on its origin in the theory of reflexive law and then introduces some specific characteristics of reflexive labour law. The chapter contains a first attempt to apply the reflexive law concept to modern labour law and concentrates on theoretical and general aspects of reflexive labour law. The main theoretical topics discussed in this chapter will be further analysed in separate chapters of the book. These topics include the regulation of self-regulation through collective agreements and employment contracts, reflexivity in the regulation of employment protection and labour market policies and reflexive global labour law. The chapter makes an attempt to refute some of the criticism of reflexive law by demonstrating the usefulness of applying auto poietic social systems theory to labour law.
