Labour Law and Social Progress: Holding the Line or Shifting the Boundaries? is a collection of incisive essays that focus on the emerging global paradigm shift in labour and employment relations. For forty years the international watchword has been deregulation of labour law and of social security. Now, however, the rise in unemployment and lack of employment security, the dizzying inequality gulf, and the environmental disasters and mass migrations caused by this deregulation are generating an impetus that defines social justice no longer merely in terms of the equitable distribution of resources but also – and often primarily – in terms of the just recognition of persons. This book recognizes that the growing interdependence among people demands that labour rights are understood as an aspect of human rights, and thus envisaged at international level. This volume of BCLR is based on a selection of papers presented at the 21st World Congress of the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law in Cape Town in 2015.

This book enables practitioners to gain a keen awareness of new and emerging issues in labour law from an international perspective.

For lawyers and other parties committed to the emerging political will not only to respect fundamental rights, but also to broadly improve labour and environmental protection, this book provides abundant choices that can be pursued in practice and in policy.
