about this item

Contributed by law, political science, and other scholars from Europe, Israel, and the US, the 14 chapters in this volume consider policy initiatives in global governance of labor rights, assessment of their effectiveness, and their potential and limitations. They address many relevant topics: the protection of freedom of association and collective bargaining in 73 countries over 30 years; the governance of labor rights through trade, including the European Union's Common Commercial Policy, the political processes of the European Parliament, labor rights in non-European Union trade agreements and bilateral investment treaties in Asia and the US, and the tensions between the European Union's economic policies and its commitment to fundamental labor rights in policies of the Council of Europe and International Labor Organization; the role of trade unions; the role of firms and corporate social responsibility; new non-state actors, such as the Decent Work Agenda in Chinese companies in Africa, private labor monitoring initiatives that govern global supply chains, private labor governance in the global banana industry and private certification schemes, and the Accord for Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh; and conceptions of responsibility in multinational enterprises.
