The White Paper, to a large extent the work of Biagi himself, was commissioned by the Italian Ministry of Labour and Social Policy and first presented to the government in October 2001. The other collaborative work included in this volume, The "Europeanisation" of Industrial Relations and Changing Industrial Relations are among Professor Biagi's last writings. At the core of these deeply committed studies lies a direct and positive response to the violent clash between the modern European heritage of social security and the unstoppable onset of globalization.
