摘要:

劳动力问题因为其日益增强的空间性和地域差异性,已经稳定地成为现代西方经济地理学的一个重要研究对象。本文首先简要回顾西方经济地理学对劳动力问题研究的几个主要阶段,进而介绍其主要研究方法和相关理论,最后根据西方经济地理学在劳动力问题上的主要研究议题提出对我国地方劳动力市场研究的启示。

Abstract:

Labor as a key production factor has been paid attention to by scholars for a long time. Since the 1990s, as a result of the changes enabled by economic globalization and technological progress, e.g., transformations of production pattern, employment structure, welfare institution and labor-capital relations, labor issues have displayed more significant than ever. Such transformations have made labor studies a key research area in the field of economic geography in the Western countries. In fact, this is just a reflection of the "institutional and cultural turn" in economic geography in recent years as labor issues become a focus of study. Since local labor market is a place where social and institutional activities and regulations interact, its study is a concrete support to the "institutional and cultural turn". This paper firstly summarizes the three main stages in labor studies by economic geographers in the Western countries, and then reviews the main theoretical approaches to labor studies. It finally analyzes and examines the implications for the geographical study of labor issues in China.

Key words: local labor market, labor regulation, economic geography, progress
