Elgar Research Reviews in Law

Barbara J. Fick

This timely research review provides a comprehensive discussion of seminal articles analysing and debating current key topics in the field of international labour law. In particular, the review focuses on the central role of the International Labour Organization (ILO) in the adoption and enforcement of labour standards, as well as the normative content of ILO Conventions forming the basis for the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. Professor Fick also pinpoints important articles which critically consider non-ILO mechanisms for enforcing labour standards assessing their effectiveness and practicality as well as scholarship reflecting on the future of international labour law and how it is impacted by the ILO Declaration, the dialogue on human rights and changes in the nature of the labour market in a global economic system.
