Social and Labour Rights in a Global Context: International and Comparative Perspectives
Cambridge University Press, Aug 29, 2002 - Law - 273 pages
The active pursuit of social and labour rights is widely seen as a crucial response to globalisation . The essays in this book--by leading scholars from the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the USA--question the effectiveness of the new rhetoric of rights such as those to decent work and security, equality of opportunity, adequate food and housing, and healthcare. The authors examine emerging new approaches at international and EU level, and in several European countries, Japan, and the USA and in codes of practice of multinational companies.
