This brief chapter accomplishes three tasks. First, it summarizes the book’s major contributions, highlighting how its theoretical approach and long historical perspective permit a better understanding of the surprising stability in labor codes in Latin America, despite efforts and pressures for reform. Second, it discusses the implications of the book’s findings for study of Latin American social policy, political economy, and corporatism. It concludes by suggesting future avenues for research on labor laws in the region, noting the need for more extensive study of variation in compliance and enforcement of legal regimes.

Keywords:   Latin America, labor laws, continuity, compliance, enforcement, social policy, political economy
