It can no longer be denied that the centre of gravity in labour relations worldwide has shifted from governments to multinational companies and financial institutions.
Accordingly, in contrast to traditional ‘international law’, which focuses on relations among nations and how they apply international conventions, a new approach is required: one of ‘transnational law’, which implies a horizontal perspective across world institutions, revealing new formulas of private regulation of economic and production relations. Nowhere is this perspective more important than in the applications of labour law.
This hugely innovative analysis projects, for the first time in such depth, the mixture of public and private regulation – both substantive and procedural – that characterizes employment relations virtually everywhere in the world today.
The book’s detailed discussions of ILO and EU measures deal not with these organizations’ rules in themselves, but with the ways these organizations regulate private entities, because such regulations mark the limits and possibilities of labour action by multinationals.
In the course of his consistently engaging study, the author identifies and synthesizes such interrelated (and relatively new) new patterns of labour relations as the following:-
For its new and enlightening perspective on labour and employment relations, and the hitherto unexplored critical analysis and comment that such an approach entails, this book opens doors for legal practice and labour policymaking almost anywhere on earth. It will be of incalculable value for all concerned lawyers, jurists, and government officials for decades to come.
