Abstract

This article discusses reasons for the persistence of considerable wage differentials between "white" and Indian seamen at a time, when the latter made up for a quarter of the British merchant marine's workforce. The consistent segmentation of the global maritime labour market, it is argued, was neither due to any innate docility of the "lascar" nor to external interventions into this market. Segmentation was rather inherent to the changing institutional arrangements through which this market acquired reality. These "scenarios of regulation" combined public and privatised, legal and informal devices in changing proportions. They are reconstructed for a period when legislation and tripartism slowly gained in importance.
