    Direct employment in multinational enterprises: Trends and implications, MULTI Working Paper No. 101

    01 January 2006

    This paper aims to examine the recent trends from a long-term perspective, and by utilizing both financial and employment data, provide a static as well as dynamic picture of the employment situation of global production undertaken by MNEs.The paper is primarily devoted to the examination of the quantitative picture of employment in MNEs. Equally relevant and important is the qualitative aspect of employment. Nonetheless, besides wage data, the lack of comprehensive and systematic data specific to MNEs on aspects such as conditions of work, social protection and industrial relations, has precluded an in-depth examination of the qualitative aspects in this paper.
