Event Details

A new book symposium organised by the Centre for Research on Law, Equality and Diversity (LEAD) for Ania Zybzsewzska's book Gendering European Working Time Regimes (CUP).

 

About the book

The standard approach to regulating working hours rests on gendered assumptions about how paid and unpaid work ought to be divided. In this book Ania Zbyszewska takes a feminist, socio-legal approach to evaluate whether the contemporary European working-time regimes can support a more equal sharing of this work. Focusing on the legal and political developments surrounding the EU Working Time Directive and the historic reforms of Poland's Labour Code, Zbyszewska reveals that both regimes retain this traditional gender bias, suggests the reasons for its persistence, and highlights its social consequences. She employs a wide range of data sources and uses the Polish case to assess the EU influence over national policy discourse and regulation, with the broader transnational policy trends also considered. This interdisciplinary book combines legal analysis with social and political science concepts to highlight law's constitutive role and relational dimensions, and to reflect on the relationship between discursive politics and legal action.

Ania Zbyszewska is an Assistant Professor at the University of Warwick School of Law.
