Globalisation and maritime labour in Norway after World War II.
Abstract: This paper looks at how "Globalisation" – narrowly defined
as the causes and effects of increased international economic integration –
has influenced the demand for and supply of maritime products and services,
with a particular emphasis on maritime labour. A central argument is that
the manner in which maritime labour has been affected varies enormously
among the maritime industries, and there is also variation among different
occupations. Today, the Norwegian maritime industries have found "a new
equilibrium", where old and national traditions have successfully merged
with the new and global realities. The discussion paper is structured
around six propositions about the relationship between globalisation and
Norwegian maritime labour, and these propositions are discussed and linked
to empirical data.
