This book examines the legislative protection of the right to work in China from an international law perspective. The right to work as a human right is an understudied subject, so is its national protection in China. The book conducts a systematic and comprehensive exploration on the content and State obligations regarding the right to work in international law, including both international human rights law and international labor law. It also examines the latest developments in China’s legislation, especially labor law, in the light of clarified international standards. In the end, the book analyses the implications of the Chinese experiences to the international human rights system.

The book is meant for academics and other actors who are interested in China’s legal system, labor issues, and human rights protection.
