Confrontation of Intellectual and Social Currents in Iran Regarding Labor Relations in the Light of Development

University of Tehran
Abstract:   (296 Views)
The present article, focusing on one of the most important areas of production and reproduction of inequality and inferiority, namely labor relations, seeks to examine the conflict and rivalry of intellectual and social currents. The study of these currents from the perspective of their analysis and prescriptions on recent trends and processes of labor relations in Iran, i.e. the temporalization of labor, requires drawing the ratio of government, society, and market from the perspective of those currents. After drawing the most important features and coordinates these intellectual currents, based on the concept of development, the gaps are expressed. Despite the obvious differences and confrontations between these currents on the issue of labor and employment relations, both lack a developmental perspective and therefore are weak or lacking in both the role of government in development and the importance of the human factor for development. As a result, they either reject the government or the market.

Keywords: Employment, Government, Institutionalism, Neoliberalism, Political Economy
