"A significant contribution to current legal, political, and economic discourse on workers in the global economy."—International and Comparative Law Quarterly

Labor rights have traditionally been a concern of labor law scholars and practitioners whose work concentrates exclusively on domestic developments. In the past decade, however, the globalization of investment and production has expanded the bounds of labor rights discourse.

Contributors to this volume provide the first comprehensive view of labor rights in the international system of commerce. They consider the avenues open to worker rights claims in the global economy under international human rights instruments, U.S. trade laws, free trade agreements, labor rights litigation, and corporate codes of conduct. They address worker rights from the standpoints of human rights concerns, trade and development policy, and labor law principles.

Lance A. Compa is a senior lecturer at Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations. Stephen F. Diamond teaches law at the Santa Clara University School of Law.
