*Special Issue of Management Revue*
*Labour Time - Life Time*

Ever since the beginning of industrialization the fight for the reduction 
of working hours was considered the way out of the “kingdom of necessity”. 
It was only in the 1980s, in the course of a decentralized organization in 
worldwide networks, that the paradigm changed to more flexible forms of 
working time management. This is no longer an issue of the collective 
actors alone but also of the individuals who have to cope with the 
increasing time flexibility in a socio-structurally differentiated way. 
>From trust-based working hours to on-call duty, from the core workforce 
with a 35-hour week to temporary work: the contemporary organization of 
working time took since long already various forms. In addition, the 
ongoing economic crisis leads in many European countries to forced 
over-employment and under-employment at the same time.

At the same time the topics are changing under which the problems of the 
“flexible character” in balancing different aspects of life are discussed 
in (human resource) management, psychology and sociology. Role conflicts, 
the balance of work, free time and family or burnout as a possible 
consequence are keywords which show that work and work time cannot be 
separated from life time.

In the special issue, we would like to discuss our topic in an adequately 
broad and interdisciplinary way. We are particularly interested in 
questions such as:

   - Disparities of working time and desired working hours in the course of 
   - Quantitative and qualitative working-time regimes
   - Time-related stress and wealth in time
   - Balancing life domain work conflict
   - Models of labour time re-distribution
   - Externalities of problematic working time arrangements, e.g. 
   influences on familylife, happiness, fertility etc.
This is not an exhaustive list.
