BeschreibungThis collection of essays by leading legal scholars and lawyers from Europe and the Americas deals with the primary issues confronting the regulation of the global workplace. It examines the role of international labour standards and the contribution of the International Labour Organization, and assesses the success of the European experiment with continental employment standards. It explores the prospects for hemispheric co-operation on labour standards in the Americas, and deals with the impact of international labour standards on the rights of women and migrant workers.
