"This book provides an authoritative analysis of how increasing globalization in the maritime sector challenges the entwined shipping communities of traditional maritime nations. Through an empirical analysis of developments in labor mobility within the maritime sector in Denmark it shows that the shipping companies have been significant providers of competence to the national maritime skills base, but also that their current global factor sourcing choices threaten to dissolve this skills base. These findings have important implications regarding productivity, growth and competitiveness for policy makers and companies in the maritime domain."--Publisher's website.
